The histories written by the Children of Memory say this of the time Before: no one in the black City knew how it had all begun. But there are tales that contain a thread of truth, woven here and there among legends, fantasies, and lies. And such was the tale whispered from birth into the minds of every child born in the City, in hopes they might never look into the darkness and wonder if there were, somewhere, a larger world.
This is the story of one of those who dared to question, and how his questions—and the course on which they led him, changed his life, and the lives of many.
This is the story of a boy called Eternity, and the City he led to freedom.
