Engaged in the task of sorting his father’s documents after his sudden death, Rieyniz Xanders uncovers something curious in Markas’s journal entries; ‘The Eternal Darkness still prevails. This is the greatest shock.’ He then has a disturbing dream: a strange face appears with a voice, “Your sister…your sister…in England.” Rieyniz resolves to sail through a spoken of but unknown plane divide at sea to find this mysterious woman. Assisted by the woman he loves, Vessel-Master Deshka, and supported by the leader of their faith, Renoulf, who is also haunted by a vision, Rieyniz braves the vortex of churning elements to reach the Earth plane, the vortex delivering them not off the coast of England, but Scotland.

May, incarcerated in a psychiatric institution from babyhood, knows she is not ‘mental’. Sharp-minded and intelligent, she adopts a strategy of pretending to be simple-minded, but her caregiver and educator, Sheila, knows otherwise. While still a young child, a face appears in her mind; his name is Anubis… but this face is not an Egyptian god but someone else. Throughout her childhood, his mysterious presence is with her. Now a young adult, May watches a political dictatorship rise in England, and when the institution’s caregivers suddenly disappear, she knows she has to get out. Following the voice of Anubis, May is reunited with Sheila who helps her escape to Scotland. There, she receives another vision – a beautiful, unusual man whom May calls her ‘Selkie’ stepping out of the waves, shedding his sealskin.
