The novel is best savored without knowing too much in advance. In saying this what we will tell you is that Illuminarium is structured around a forensic psychologist named Harper who, while on a walk in the woods one day, happens upon a book. The pages draw her psychologically into another world, as she reads the life story of a character named York. The more she reads, the more she realizes that this book is far from ordinary. Before she knows it, her perspective on reality is adjusted to a new level of awakening, thrusting her at the forefront of an age old battle between good and evil.
I began to live within my continuum of potential upon awakening to my own limitations of sight, sound and an altered understanding of everything previously believed to be known.
The world I thought I knew is nothing but a mask of shadows skulking through a never ending labyrinth of deception and lies. Are you who you really are or who they want you to think you are?
Understanding does not by default equate to truth because perspective will always be a relative state of shifting sands founded on our limited knowledge at any given point within a spectrum of time.
