Synopsis

"In a city of dreamers, there are bound to be nightmares."

In a nation where wealth equals worth, a mercenary, a priestess, and a psychic must enter the disturbed mind of a merchant kind to prevent a civil war.


When a contract leads Jespar Dal'Varek, mercenary and professional cynic, to the island nation of Kilé, he sees it as a chance to turn the page.

He quickly finds that the "Land of Opportunities" and it's glittering metropolis walk on a tightrope. While the upper class lives in luxury, a controversial decree has birthed an insurgency among the poor.

As Jespar learns that the First Magnate has fallen into a supernatural coma and that it's his mission to find out what caused it, he realizes that in a city of dreamers there are bound to be nightmares. And that sometimes, it's only a thin line that separates the sleeping and the awoken.
