The world is running down. People are mysteriously disappearing, leaving behind only small stains of glycerin. Overhead, mysterious objects are appearing just beyond our atmosphere, and deliberately burning themselves to dust as they fall toward earth. Some say our machines are absorbing us, some say aliens have come here to commit suicide.
A small band of wanderers spins the wheels of a Llull Machine, trying to make their way safely through a collapsing world, and trying at the same time to solve the mysteries and save themselves-and an unexpected next generation.
