Story Summary

In an outer space settlement, a quirky, close-knit team of scientists are working on the AmSaf Machine, a ground-breaking technology that expands the capacity of the human mind through dreams. Entering the dream space while secretly very distressed, their test subject, Berit, gets stuck in an endless loop of nightmares. Now, only her estranged brother, Travis, can use the machine to save her before her mind deteriorates and a decade’s worth of research is all for nothing.
