The City of Light

ISBN-13: 978-0-944657-03-6 (e-book)

The City of Light is a beautiful and evocative story in the epic tradition. It makes remarkable use of the mythic and the symbolic to weave a gripping tale about the end of a civilization. One morning Luce awakens to discover the Sun is gone, and the world plunged into eternal night. Everyone rushes toward the City for it is here alone that the last light on earth still shines. Luce too is drawn to the City and it’s light and eventually learns how it threatens to destroy the world he knows and loves. His journey through the City of Light is an allegorical voyage through the modern world, which everyone should undertake, if they have the courage to do so.
