A young man's odyssey of self discovery in a world eerily alien, yet hauntingly familiar. Set 13 centuries in the future, A. A. Attanasio meticulously creates a brilliantly realized Earth, rich in detail and filled with beings brought to life with intense energy. In this strange and beautiful world, Sumner Kagan will change from an adolescent outcast to a warrior with god-like powers and in the process take us on an epic and transcendent journey.
the book is so colorful and dreamy even though the tale is dark and full of gloom.

The author’s attempt to describe grandiose universal cosmic meaning defy logic and become nonsensical. Coupled with a sincere tone of the performance, it becomes almost laughable... then annoying.
The beginning of the story and the character development is enjoyable, but that’s about it.
