'Truth exists independently of any one person'? Great, the Skeptic is completely delusional. Nel and co are going to have to work a miracle if they want to find the Architect, and make it out of this intact...

Exceptionally paced and abundant with artifice, Piercing the Mundane teases even more of the greater game at play outside of Nowhere while testing both the characters and the reader with challenges of intellect. Thrilling to the end.

Is Nowhere just the product of someone's unconsciousness? Could Nel, Rev, and Gin be nothing but figments of a dream? Could knowing the truth really jeopardise Nowhere's non-existence?
Solipsism: thy name is Nowhere.

The stakes are high and the tension taught in this luminous adventure. The Dreamer elevates the conflict at the heart of Insomnium to precipitous heights: is a happy ending even possible now? Must read on to find out...

Regret is a burden only the self can excise.
Gin has been told time and time again that her sister's death wasn't her fault, but until she truly believes that, her future will hold naught but vacuous penance. And if the Monarch has her way, Gin might not even have that...

Gin's tale of remorse is sincere and affecting, touching on topics of grief, blame, and love with such honesty that it is nigh impossible not to feel her pain. Long Live the Queen is simply the most relatable chapter in the Insomnium series yet.

It's time for Nel, Rev, and Gin to confront the conflict that drove them to Nowhere in the first place. To acknowledge and own their past actions and inactions. To move on to a brighter future.
Or should that be 'brighter always'? The passage of time in Nowhere is always so confusing...

Spelunking the various Seattles provides intriguing and salient commentary on many political and ethical quandaries we see today. That Ego Altered explores such potentialities without disrupting its gripping narrative pace is testament to Zachary's skill at storytelling, and social commentary.

Ever have that feeling that you forgot something, and no matter how hard you try, you just can't recall it?
Nel and Rev... Why does that sound incomplete? And how does Rev have a holographic computer when his Seattle had never invented holographic technology?
Something is definitely amiss, and it's starting to literally eat away at Nel and Rev's very existence...

You know it's a good story when you start verbally cheering for the protagonists. With a distinctly Matrix-esque vibe, Know Thyself earns such praise for its constantly compelling narrative and endearing bonds between characters. Tremendous.

What happened to the Voxls? Were they killed? Erased? Or did they escape? And why can no one remember them?
The Usurper knows the answer, but he prefers to show rather than tell...

Balancing a clever - and hilarious - homage to pop culture with the deepest glimpse yet into Nowhere's dark depths, Sugar under the Devil delivers smiles, scowls, and one heck of an unsettling ending.

Conundrum! How do you beat a legal system run by nigh omniscient jellyfish when you're charged with *feeling* too much?
Answer: Find a beer-swigging alligator with a penchant for black eyes and boxing...

Presenting legal proceedings in an engaging and intriguing light is no mean feat, but Trial by Water pulls it off effortlessly. Tension and tumult propel this underwater adventure towards another tantalising conclusion.

The Wanderer knows of an exit, they say. An exit from Nowhere. But beware! For he feeds on emotion, and his palace of depravity knows nothing of restraint...

A blisteringly paced adventure through a den of debauchery, Unnatural Desire provokes and evokes with equal abandon, culminating with a realisation too oft-ignored: normal is what we make it. A beautifully bombastic read.

Ever wished for a fresh start? A clean slate? A new world where the golden paths of all-possibility lay at your feet?
Nowhere is not that place.
Nel's hometown of Seattle might have been a post-decadent dog pile, but at least it didn't have talking fish, alligator guards, and slendermen sentinels around every corner.
And what's this about a metaxia?
A riveting introduction to a realm of fantastical weirdness. Asleep builds fast and fluidly, with a parade of potentialities for future installments to expand upon. Intrigue awaits!
