To save the sister he's never known, Tom Gareth will journey to an unnamed village that no one returns from.
22 year-old Tom Gareth is confronted by a lone messenger at his father’s wake. Tom reads the letter and recognizes the handwriting of his departed dad. “You have a half-sister,” it says. “Her name is Jennifer Poe. She has been taken. Save her.”
Beneath the mounds of dust in his father’s office rest notes and clues etched on every inch of hard surface. When pieced together the scribbles reveal not only Jennifer Poe's location, but the fact that Tom's father was directly involved in the kidnapping and its cover-up.
Armed only with a fake FBI badge and a broken compass, Tom recruits the aid of the beautiful Lynette, his only friend and unlikely foil. The duo journey to the peaks of Colorado where they are greeted by Anduine Crescent, a former resident of the Village who has developed a taste for chocolate rabbits and handguns. To learn Jennifer Poe's fate and finally form an identity of his own, Tom will have to place his trust in two women with unknown motives, interrogate violent enemies, dodge bullets, interpret ancient texts, and fight off the bizarre guardians who live to destroy all that threaten the Village to the Left.
