After decades of struggling, the broken remnants of humanity barely escape on the last starship from a cataclysmic otherworldly threat and wanders in the darkness of space for blind hope and a desolate future. 

They eventually find themselves on a journey and a fight for ancient wisdom, long forgotten civilizations and a mythical planet called Earth, yet the cycle of endless dark secrets, oppression, destruction and fear is in pursuit. And in the end, is there anything left?

Takatsu's approach on the well traversed theme is a haunting literary and deeply metaphysical experience where the interstellar novel's grim and traumatized characters search the cosmos for answers to the greater age old questions on spirituality, the human condition, mortality, history, mythology, higher dimensions and our place in the stars.

[Interstellar Sci-fi, Literary, Mysticism]


---

This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best.
Night, sleep, death and the stars.
- Walt Whitman

From the Watty's 2014 award-winning author of dystopian literary novel, Espresso Love.
