The Book of Adam begins with the story of Jennifer, a 19 year old girl living in a timeless city. Within this city of ageless beings Jennifer is considered a problem child as she is the only person
in the entire city that ages. An old man within the city confides in Jennifer that the world had been broken and the creators of the universe, Time and Destiny, are nowhere to be found. Long ago
everyone had aged and the world had flowed as it should, but Time was struck down and Destiny disappeared leaving no one to put the world back together. Jennifer, tired of living in a city stuck on
repeat, ventures into the snow covered wasteland beyond her city's edge in search of Destiny. Along the way she discovers that the world is far more broken than she'd originally thought and that
it's far more beautiful than she could have ever imagined.
