  • It seems like such a wonderful, exotic place.

  • Majestic, ice-capped mountains and emerald forests, ancient temples and shrines, rushing rivers and breath-taking waterfalls.

  • To a normal person, the lands of Japan would be the perfect setting for a vacation.

  • But to me, the world was no longer normal.

  • My name is Jimmy Fincher, and mine is a story of wonder and dread.

  • Jimmy Fincher

    (And I really, really hate cooked peas, but that has nothing to do with this story.)

  • Only fourteen years old, I’d been set on a course that could not stop, or the world I called my own, along with countless others, would be in terrible jeopardy.

  • The things I’d been through and the circumstances that led to my urgent arrival in the beautiful lands of Japan are difficult to summarize without sounding like a shoeless wacko from the backwoods of Georgia.

  • A conspiracy of crazed men, who were actually beings from another, darker place, trying to open a magical door.

  • My dad, caught in the middle, doing his best to prevent them.

  • Me, just a boy, the one destined to open it.

  • Jimmy Fincher

    A special gift received, one that made me indestructible.

  • The Givers, a mysterious people determined to help save our world from an enemy unprecedented in ruthlessness.

  • The Black Curtain, that strange, unpredictable portal that led to The Blackness, a pathway between countless worlds.

  • A new friend, Joseph, kidnapped by shadows with wings.

  • Permeating it all, a phrase that had grown to haunt us in our dreams.

  • The Stompers are coming.

  • Jimmy Fincher

    This was the substance of my new life, and although it was more exciting than the old one, I wasn’t particularly enjoying it.
