'In the heart of the Labyrinth of Varissen, there dwells a beast known only as the Devourer. However, the Devourer is sick of eating adventurers, and he suspects that once, long ago, he bore another name. So when a young woman arrives, declaring that she’s here to rescue him, the Devourer persuades her to join him on a search for his forgotten past.'
'In the unseen realm enfolding the world, timeless custodians maintain order and balance. However, when one custodian unexpectedly "retires", this triggers a chain of events that threatens the separation between the worlds.'
'After the Apocalypse, Ven the android is sent away with the last surviving human child. Almost a century before, a scientist named Arvel Hem speculated that humans suffer from a “chronogenetic species-wide pathology” that has now caused mass die-offs. The boy named Solomon may be the exception. There may be others. Ven’s quest is to find Hem, who took off across the universe to avoid the conflagration he knew was coming to Earth. On the ship, Sol grows up, Ven slowly deteriorates, and so does their vessel' (Lois Tilton, Locus Online).
