In the west, human history runs in cycles moving from periods of highs and awakenings through periods of crisis. In observing these cycles and understanding how they relate to our nature I began to ask:
Where do we truly come from? Who and what are we, and have we been here before? And what would happen if trust, the most fundamental element of cohesion in western society, was violated on a continental scale?
In my novel, the possible answers to these questions set the stage for the next super-cycle, a grand turning that will flip the entire world on its head. And it all begins in the City of the Dead.
