We are all connected. Our emotions, our memories, our minds are all linked by a thread power known as the Nexus. All life can access this connection, but there are few who realize its existence, and even fewer who can use it to control those around them. Jim Ash is about to become one of the fewer. After a contract goes wrong, Jim plummets through the world, shattering into the dark plains of the Below. He should be dead, should be swallowed by the afterlife told in religious stories and myth, but he is very much alive, and he has one more contract. A contract sold by Death. Destroy what links me to the world of life. Free me from this prison.
