An ancient soul is born again, forced into life to redeem his sins. Yet he does not want to live, he does not want to try again and fail.

In the wake of this soul's return an unlikely group forms, and set out on a quest to find him; Io.
What they find is more than they have bargained for, and less than what they need. The World is falling apart at the seams and time is wasting away. Follow their journey through destruction, desolation, hopelessness, devotion and love.

World of Io

Submitted: July 06, 2013

I am Io. The world has been waiting for me, waiting for me to come and ruin it again. Waiting for me to die... They see me as their last hope, they always do, but I always fail. This time the world is falling apart at the seams, and I am not aware. I am not myself. Hope dies and souls are lost and I am not able to save them... This is my story, of despair, of hope, of love, of hate, of beauty and misery. Read it if you want to follow my journey towards the end, or towards a new beginning Read Chapter
