The people of Thermidore sought to cheat death, but made a poor bargain and have been turned into crystalline statues, all save Casmeer. Alone in his timeless city, he begins a tale, but where does reality end and fiction begin? It is a tale of cities that that roam endlessly, and of the terranauts who guide the cities. The wanderings of Finnigin, a young terranaut, and Ays, a priest whose hands bring the gift of death, seem both to be somehow guided by mysterious strangers who know far too much about them, and will eventually lead to the same destination. Storm Constantine's style is sensual and hypnotic, and she creates a rich and vivid dreamscape. Highly recommended.
