The few survivors of the planet Zegandaria embark on a long journey to the cold and bleak satellite Charon, which lies in the solar system. In an attempt to escape the sinister secret of computer demon viruses buried deep beneath the surface of Zegandaria in a special sarcophagus they believe is sealed for all time. On the small space colony of Semrik Sin, which bears the name of one of the veterans of the City of Light, they find peace for a time, but it in turn does not last too long. Mysterious murders committed by the so-called Invisibles mark a dark series of secrets that is marked with more and more blood. After the murder of his best friend Jake, Jervond Om San convinces a small group of adventurers to embark on a sinister expedition to the so-called Dead City, located in the sinister Mordor Macula, where Jervond and his companions' ideas of reality will be upended. The group discovers the Voargis buried beneath the ice, and Jessica Edwater sacrifices herself to not only save the life of her beloved, but to help him see the truth of the nature of things. As time passes, Jervond slowly realizes that the darkness comes from his own soul, and the Light creatures that appear to him reveal all to him. Seraija Gul San's heir faces a difficult choice, but he accepts his fate with dignity.
