In SUSY Asylum, there is no release. There is no escape. No hope.
Oliver and Desiree are introduced to the writings of a mysterious blogger, Commodore Chaos, when they return to Provex City to indulge in what the sublime city has to offer. The blogger claims the Lornes are collecting people venturing between the higher planes of awareness and locking them away in a mythical asylum. But are these legitimate concerns for inter-plane travelers or just the ramblings of an anonymous conspiracy blogger?
Oliver looks to Provex City as his only connection to his father while Desiree looks to the city as an escape from the torment of losing her best friend—again. Provex City is a wonder of beautiful treasures, entrancing them to continue returning. But behind the beauty, wolves have continued hunting Oliver, a boy who is still unaware of his importance in the rebellion.
Oliver’s belief is waning. Desiree will not always be by his side. Mr. Gordon will not always come to his aid. Oliver finds himself alone, forced to confront his biggest fears, fight his inner demons, and face the very cold reality that no one is coming to save him.
Welcome to SUSY Asylum.
Title: Provex City
Series: Lorne Family Vault, #1
Fifteen-year-old Oliver Grain begins his school year fighting off bullies, learning about the boy who committed suicide in his room, and trying to understand why his history teacher, Mr. Gordon, has taken such a personal interest in him.
Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe you can make bullies simply disappear? Do you believe you can walk through walls?
Mr. Gordon tells Oliver: “When you truly believe anything is possible, you will be able to open doors where there were only walls.” And one of those doors leads Oliver to Provex City, which puts him in far greater danger than he can possibly fathom.
Today, I’m going to share a guest post from the perspective of Oliver Grain, the protagonist in the book, SUSY Asylum.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
Six Uncommon Facts Gathered from
My Travels to Provex City and Beyond
By Oliver Grain
1. The Lorne wolf-head tattoo opens just about every door imaginable — until you run into another Lorne, that is. The family even has its own private rooms reserved in restaurants (and probably a lot of other places) just on the off chance a Lorne family member will walk through the door.
2. Regular people have come to fear the wolf-head tattoo so much, that when they are shone one, they don’t look at it very closely. They simply shrink in fear and do whatever you ask. It’s a pretty awesome power—but quite scary as well. The real tattoo is more of a brand, so a closely scrutinized imitation would be noticeable. I was lucky…for the most part.
3. The asymmetric plane does not look the way it does in the House of Mirrors. The buildings aren’t crumbling from neglect because they’re not really in the same plane. The buildings, utilities, and city services are all controlled in the symmetric plane. The mirrors in the asymmetric plane have no control over electricity, plumbing, automobiles…nothing. Their plane really is just a shadow of our own.
4. Mirrors and daediems are the same things. In the plane where Provex City is, they are called mirrors, and in a higher plane (I’m assuming the next one up), they seem to be called daediems.
5. On The Line, between the symmetric and asymmetric planes, people and their mirrors can co-exist in the same space with neither one as the dominant being. This I learned from my time in the asylum. The two beings are essentially equal, share the same feelings, and suffer the same pain. However, once in the asymmetric plane, the mirror becomes the dominant being and feelings are no longer shared. That’s why people who cross over rarely return.
6. It is accepted by everyone in Provex City (and probably the world) that if you kill your mirror, then you’re killing yourself. One cannot exist without the other. If your mirror dies, then so do you. The Lornes have discovered that this accepted fact is not entirely true…
