‘SHADOW OF AETHER’
Paradox is known throughout the sprawling metropolis of Aether for three things: her superspeed; her ability to see visions of the past, present and future and her less-than-charming personality.
When she has a vision that shows her a mysterious force taking over and corrupting her homeland, she decides to take matters into her own hands.
During the mission, she comes across someone who changes everything.
Now, Paradox must do whatever she can to put things back to normal.
Paradox is a Unitas. A member of a race that possess incredible physical gifts, latent magical ability and access to technology so advanced that it is essentially magic itself. But Paradox has a unique gift, one that no other Unitas has ever had, leading to her being ostracised by many. Due to this, Paradox has developed both a stern attitude as well as an inability to accept her own gift.
When trying to escape from the pressures of her curse one day, Paradox literally escapes; accidentally entering the world of her favourite book. How will this experience change her? If, indeed, it does at all.
