A boy creates a parallel universe, an exiled murderer seeks revenge, and an ominous split in the sky grows wider in this psychologically-thrilling fantasy tale.
When Whik finds an ancient device, he unknowingly creates a parallel reality. The black void that creeps across the sky grows wider, an omen to his people of a crumbling world. Whik is plagued with dark visions and an imaginary friend that looks oddly just like him.
Malachi, an exiled murderer, is looking for the same device. Yet he has an army of northern monsters to aid him, and he's about to invade Whik's island.
As Whik comes to terms with his visions and the two worlds he has created, both realities are splitting at the seams and blurring together. With help from his friends - Charlotte, the childless widow, Frankford, the passionate scientist, and Geoffrey Marg, the fearless sea captain - Whik must seal the rift and stop the destruction of both worlds, all while keeping Malachi from destroying it all.
