Publisher: Calypso Publishing
In a near-future devastated Earth, Aaila is saddened that her seven-year-old son no longer remembers who she is. He has been taken over by an ancient power that grants godlike status. She follows her son-turned-divine-leader into harm's way, in an attempt to protect him, even though he no longer knows she is his mother. She willingly accepts that she will die protecting him. However, the trip turns out to be far more than she could ever have imagined.
