Ever darker grows the waking world. A general uncertainty falls upon the citizens of the Earth. Many choose to hide inside their homes and sleep in the hopes of breaking through to even one more level in the wake of unsettling news. Monsters, in small numbers, have begun to stalk the real world.
While the common people of the Earth go about their lives in fretful uncertainty, The newly made dragon, Blackthorne, has to come to terms with many things about himself. Some of which are far more fantastic even than the fact that his world is slowly turning into a live-action role playing game for the pleasure of ridiculous, belligerent, and uncaring gods.
The ever-present voices inside one's own mind that seek to tear a man down into nothing. Scott battled these forces every day as a man. As a dragon, he began to find solace. Yet, what happens when he learns the truth? Why do so many forces seem determined to single him out?
Chains of fate and memory weigh him down. Will he rise up, or will he fall to despair? Can he, in the end, break free of those shackles and become something he was always meant to be?
