The story itself is not a new idea, there are countless stories about a book, there are countless stories about a boy coming of age, but this one is about the people that care for a book about their own history which time has forgotten.
Monk is the son of an alchemist and the archivist of his people’s history. On his thirteenth birthday following the tradition of his people, Monk sets off on an inner journey to find himself on the way to becoming a man. Along his spiritual odyssey, he discovers his worst nightmares that challenge his inner strength and a life of learning. Using the knowledge of his people that was passed down through generations, he begins to find out who he really is, but at great personal sacrifice.
