Abstract:

At the end of the twentieth century, the Earth entered the Line, a beam of radiant energy from a distant black hole. In the aura of this strange power, the Earth was altered forever. Humanity distorted into a variety of forms. Reality as we know it collapsed, opening into a greater consciousness. Ancient, timeless beings incarnated themselves in human flesh, endowing it with unimaginable power. Into this twilight age a youth was born who was destined to transform the future of humankind. At first a frightened, rebellious teenager, he was forged into a brutal warrior in a harrowing rite of passage. A wanderer for a time among a tribe of outcasts, he began to discover his humanity. At last, he was forced to turn against those who made him to unleash toe godlike powers he held.
