"A dark and moody journey through an alternate Earth" where light and music are the stuff of magic-from an award-winning video game composer (John Patrick Lowrie). In the cold, dark winters of a land without sun, the projektors practice an ancient craft, carry flame in their palms without pain to keep the town lit and warm. Their communion with the elements is as old as the world itself, but their duties are slowly being taken over by inanimate objects-the machinae-and the people they serve are fleeing their homes in droves for the cities. Labeled conspirators against the Crown, they are now punished for practicing the art of projeksjon. After his mother dies, young Sigurd joins the exodus from his small town to Tigrebyn, the City of Tigers, where he must fend for himself among petty thieves and heartless merchants. There, he meets Ragna, who has taken it upon herself to track and protect the remaining projektors.But Sigurd's powers are nothing as mundane as bringing forth light and warmth. He can command the very air to transform the sounds in his head into musical compositions, conducting an invisible orchestra of instruments and effects. The professors at the University wish to use Sigurd's gift to invent the greatest machina yet-but first they must bend him to their will. "L. Chappelle has crafted a dark and moody journey through an alternate Earth filled with interesting characters, intriguing magic, and creative alternative technology." -John Patrick Lowrie, author of Dancing with Eternity
