When the ancient Antyrans made contact with an advanced civilization, the meeting turned out to be memorable – if only because the visitors burned their cities to the ground, melted their beautiful ice temples and locked the Antyran star system inside a weird space distortion, hiding the stars.
A thousand years later, the discovery of a spaceship buried in a ravine on a recently colonized planet will open up the chest of madness.
The hero of our story, Gillabrian – or Gill, as friends use to call him – is an Antyran archaeologist. After discovering the secrets of the visitors, he has to run, chased everywhere and by everyone.
The quest for the long-forgotten history of the Antyrans forces Gill to discover that he has the strength to survive, even against overwhelming odds.
Behind the legends of the past lurks the cold shadow of the night. What lies beyond the edge of nothingness?
