Scientific experimentation leads to disastrous results in this tale of psychological horror.
Haymond Gunning is a shifter of minds — a seasoned neurological guide leading a group of scientists through the mindscape of a psychopath. Their mission: eliminate the Darkness that’s spreading. But as the team carves a path through the patient’s prefrontal cortex, Haymond gets the notion this expedition is nothing like the others. Shadows emerge bearing cryptic messages, mutated beasts prowl just beyond the camp’s perimeter, and impossible weather conditions complicate their travels.
But nothing is random. Controlling it all is a singular entity, enigmatic and vile, whose sole intention is to repel the team from its dominion. If the experiment fails, the Institute risks dissolution. But luckily, Haymond has never failed to complete an expedition, and he’d do anything to keep his record pristine.
As lies and manipulation twist the team’s understanding of reality, paranoia sets in, and their scrutiny turns inward. Can they maintain their current course and complete the experiment, or will they succumb to the very infection they’ve been sent to destroy?
