Book Description

Gods, gaming and a reincarnating goldfish … Lars Nilsson’s life is about to level up.

A hacked-off online gamer, an ageing spiritual scientist, a psychotropic-addled anaesthetist, and a reclusive RPG developer undertake an unusual quest.

An online gamer’s escapist routine is disrupted by mysterious powers, and his journey of self-discovery begins. He’s sent spiralling towards a destiny where shadow animals patrol the street corners, gryphons command the purple skies, and an other-wordly force is determined to prevent him from discovering the true origins of his identity.

A spiritual science experiment tears open a passage to the underworld, and a deal is made with a mischievous supernatural being. The ancient immortal guardians of the afterlife have been displaced and the land of the dead is rotting in their absence.

The clock is ticking to take back control of the afterlife, but a mysterious future tech company have a powerful ally and different intentions for the land of the dead.
