City’s concrete walls, London has done the
impossible and the illegal. She’s created something New- a song. But
her mentor, club owner Pauly, is not impressed. Since the historic Energy
Crisis forced everyone behind walls generations ago, the Tycoons have ensured
there is truly nothing new allowed under the sun. Pauly warns London to keep her song to herself, if she
knows what’s good for her.
What he doesn’t know is that
London is keeping an even bigger secret: she
dreams. And she’s not alone. London’s
band-mates and friends have begun dreaming as well, seeing themselves in “night
pictures” as beings from another world. As Otherborn, they must piece
together the story of their astral avatars, the Others, in order to
save their world from a dreamless, hopeless future.
When Pauly is murdered and an Otherborn goes missing,
realizes someone is hunting them down. Escaping along the Outroads, they brave
the deserted Houselands with only their dreams to guide them. Can they find
their friend before the assassin finds them? Will being Otherborn save their
lives, or destroy them?
