His name is Michael Thames, but he doesn’t know that - not yet. He just goes by Kid, the name they gave him at the fire station where he was dropped off as a baby.
Since splitting the juvie and foster scene at the bright young age of thirteen, he's done what he needed to survive the streets: building a hidden home on a derelict rooftop, and earning cash running packages for a mysterious syndicate called The White Lotus.
When cruising turns to crisis, he'd much rather avoid the drama and hide above the battle without having to worry about anyone. But fate has other plans.
Alice is an orphan as well, raised in The Young School, sharpened into what’s known in secret circles as a traveler: someone with skills necessary to move between the Materia Mundi and The Animus Mundi, also known as the real world and The Dream.
She likes the freedom that strength brings, likes being on the side that wins. But, after one of Kid's courier jobs go sideways, her world is turned upside down and she must reevaluate what the 'right side' means.
Kid n' Alice - Humble street runner and agent of The Dream. They must use their gifts and wit to battle the shadows inside themselves, destroy an ancient power, and with a bit of luck, save two worlds.
