Through a city torn apart by violence they cannot comprehend, three disparate people: a documentary film-maker, a yeshiva student, and a psychotic fireman must try to survive, and try to find meaning - even if it means being lost themselves.
As Tel Aviv is consumed, a strange mountain rises at the heart of the city and shows the outline of what may be another, alien world beyond. Can there be redemption there? Can the fevered rumours of a coming messiah be true? As the city loses contact with the outside world and closes in on itself, as the few surviving children play and scavenge in the ruins, can innocence survive? And is it possible for hope to spring amid such chaos?
Imagine a collaboration between Jorge Luis Borges and Harlan Ellison: apocalyptic, recursive, and ultimately mind opening. Neil Gaiman recommended it and I'm glad I took him up on the recommendation. If they made a movie or a Game of Thrones type series of from it (which for the authors' sake I hope they do) they will get it wrong but maybe, just maybe, right enough that others will find the original.
