On Earth Pomroy lies in a coma with no connection to the life going on around him. In other worlds, however, he's perfectly conscious-and in terrible danger.
Separated from Nna, his young traveling companion, Pomroy finds himself stranded on an asteroid that's home to the synths, bizarre creatures who metabolize food through the many filaments covering their bodies.
As Nna sets out to find Pomroy, she encounters some rather strange traveling companions, including a tiny man, a creature with tentacles that serves as an odd massage therapist, and a sentient plant. She also runs into an old woman who mesmerizes her with tales of the "ageless one," a being with power to heal or destroy as he sees fit.
Meanwhile, back on Earth, the fight for control of the universe heats up as scientists try to rebuild the dark matter device that originally propelled Pomroy into another dimension.
Worlds collide as greed overcomes the rules of civilization. Who is the ageless one, really? And what is his intent? Will Pomroy and Nna be separated forever? If answers are to be had, Pomroy, Nna, and their friends must test the known limits of time and space.
