Sarah returns to reality just as several government agents close in on her home. Meanwhile, the paradox formed by her genetic similarity to her brother, Jesse, now forces a duplication of Sarah’s identity to become overlaid upon the previously occupied Selina template. The result is a seventeen-year-long gap in memory as a pseudo-Sarah wakes to discover a world where Dark-elves dominate civilization.
Jesse Berrach was formerly a paramedic. The ghastly accident that put him in the hospital also caused the end of his career, and coincided with the end of his marriage. During his recovery, he receives a package containing the online game entitled Wayward Fates, but when he initiates the program, he becomes catatonic. He enters a world far removed from that of his hospital room. Confronted with severe conflicts in terms of reality, he begins to doubt his sanity.
While the very boundaries of reality become distorted, the star-crossed web of lives and crisscrossed intrigue continue to expand, in Book Three of the Rendering Nirayel series: a four-part novel.
