When Kane tries to piece together his memories, his definition of reality starts to come undone...

All Kane Montgomery knows is that the police found him half-dead in the river. The only witness — his little sister Sophia — claims he was dragged there by something not of this world. If Kane can’t come up with a better explanation, he’ll be shipped off to award.

As Kane pieces together clues, he’s confronted by reality rapidly coming undone. The local community college warps into a subterranean temple, a historical estate nearby blooms into a Victorian romance, and people come out of the woodwork, claiming to be his secret friends. Increasingly tangible and terrifying realities materialize around Kane…and then his memories begin to return.
