From a gritty neighborhood in downtown San Francisco, a young street runner is thrust into a crisis of grave responsibility after a courier job goes wrong. With newfound friends, he must undertake a harrowing journey through parallel worlds of the mind and spirit, across the cracks of creation itself, to destroy an ancient power and save the ones he loves.
His name is Michael Thames.
But he doesn’t know that yet. He just goes by Kid,
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 too, raised in The Young School and sharpened into what’s known in secret circles as a 'traveler.' That's someone with the skills necessary to move between the real world and The Dream.
She likes the freedom that strength brings, likes being top of the class, and 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.
