Caspa lives in a vast empty metropolis on the edge of nowhere called Vennolandua, alone except for silent Shadows who look after him. After a mysterious fugitive washes ashore, Caspa’s world changes forever. Is this stranger the friend he’s been longing for or a threat to his much loved city? Why does he seem to know more about Vennolandua than Caspa does? And who are the “others” he is so afraid of? When darker Shadows come to hunt this castaway Caspa must solve the mystery of his birth or risk being torn away from his home forever.
Caspa’s plight is that of every reader who builds satisfaction on “owning” only to realize that true happiness resides in “belonging.” Then the question emerges: Belonging to whom?
