Kaleb Bell is one of five engineers in the town of Idlevine, tasked with maintaining the ancient computer systems which monitor and sustain The Sleepers. Since the death of his wife, Kaleb has struggled to focus on his important work, spending his time fiddling with useless machines and drinking the strange, illegal alcohol fermented by his only friend, Vlad Ramiro. 

Then, one morning, everything changes. Vlad, the town's Watcher, tells Kaleb he saw something on the security feed that hasn't been observed in at least five hundred years:

The footage showed something--or someone--outside the town's barriers. 

Kaleb, Vlad, and Vlad's assistant, Jameson Buford, set out to examine the barrier. What they discover will change their lives, and the lives of everyone in the town, forever.

Greetings from a former resident of the PNW! I grew up in a rural community outside Spokane. Thought I'd drop by and informally greet you both before I begin my NBR review:)
Damn. That trailer *shudders* The  opening gave me goose bumps.  Great job of blending the music and the images to create such an awesome effect!!

The Charles Bridge!  Also makes an appearance in my story, and is such a staple of history; seems like an almost sentient character😊

Sweet! I love maps. I play rpg's all the time, and act as a GM, so map-making is a fun part of the mix.
