He needs some time to discover why this strange world seems so familiar, yet fascinatingly different to him. On his journeys, Ayzer will meet Uselya, the love of his life, and make many new friends, some highly influential, others merely of noble birth. Above all, he’ll try to solve the mystery of the emptiness in his own heart. Who is he and which world—his or Oen’s—is the real world?
