N’iel, brother, do you remember?..

To save the life of his twin sister, N’iel broke the sacred law of their race and condemned both her and himself to exile.

But even the wisdom of the advanced civilisation that became their new home is not enough to save N’iel once he succumbs to the disease that has been the bane of the Singers ever since the time of the clouds. It is L’iume’s turn to see how far she will go in saving her brother.

This role would indeed be terribly difficult – to anyone who didn’t have a natural advantage to start with.

Have you ever felt alone inside your own head? Think how alone you can feel if almost everyone in your world actually shares their mind with someone…
