Enter Christopher Prometheus, a man who refuses the Council's blissful ignorance. Setting out into the Broken world with his bizarre weapon and a cat named Cat, Christopher Prometheus will challenge man and monster alike--brave dangerous ruins and terrifying depths all to obtain the most rare and precious thing in the Broken world: books. Abandoned by the people of Before, burned and destroyed by the Council's agents, only Christopher Prometheus can save the fading spark of knowledge and beauty that these precious relics hold.
Pursued by tenacious bounty hunters, lunatic surgeons, and murderous Council agents, Christopher and Cat build their forbidden library one adventure at a time. Perhaps with bravery, persistence, and more than a little luck they can snatch their paper prizes from the jaws of doom and make it back home in time for a relaxing read...and a fresh can of Tuna.
