Carter Morrison didn’t want to kill his friends, or himself, but he had a good reason. It was them, or the end of all life on the planet.
Their sacrifice saved the world. Not that anyone knew it.
Until Katherine Manners stumbled over a melting man in a computer room clutching a message of doom from another world.
Follow Carter Morrison, Catherine Manners, Elandine the Queen of Hazurrium, and Jason Cole — also known as the Betrayer — as they try to understand, survive, save, and in Jason’s case, break free of the fictional worlds that insulate Earth from the dangers of the Strange, where world-eating monstrosities called planetovores lurk.
