Synopsis: “Earth is an ancient myth, long forgotten. Now, the word of the god-like Celestials is absolute, and they rule with brutal efficiency. When Joss, an Engineward, discovers and reactivates the head of an ancient ghoulem, she finds all is not as intended. Her destiny-and that of her world-lies somewhere far beyond the borders of her shantytown.”
It seems that this story is set in a future era where Earth has long been shrouded by myth and the absolute word in the cosmos belongs to despots known as the Celestials. But when an Engineward reactivates an ancient golem’s head, she comes to see that maybe their word is not so absolute!
