Be careful as you approach the garden of spinal thorns: some of the flowers and bones are too fragile and too helpless, others are spiky and unbent. They can sting or heal you. The same applies to words. Some of them will soothe you, make you feel loose, and some may hurt you, like an unavoidable truth you never wanted to hear. But in the end, you will know that it was all needed, so you could grow into the beautifully-ornamented skeleton you support, flourished and blossomed. With spikes and all.This is an autopsy of the heart and the soul of the young.

Archibald, a young man from earth’s surface, is mistakenly brought to a subterranean civilization, and is thrust into a class conflict where weapons built with a strange element threaten to destroy the entire population. Faced with the choice of helping the very civilization that robbed him of his life above, or dying with them, Archibald’s world is turned upside down.Excerpt:”Arch gazed at the flower, captivated by its oddity and size. Just as he turned to go back through the tunnel, he noticed a dull light coming from inside the petals. It was so faint he thought it was just his eyes playing tricks, but as he stared, the glow became unmistakable. He slowly stepped closer to the light, which began to illuminate the petals as its glow grew. Light started to hit the stone in the enclosure, illuminating the walls to reveal engraved writing. But Arch only saw the flower. He looked inside the petals, at the peculiar, soft, captivating radiance. It rolled and flickered like a living flame across the golden petals. Arch didn’t sense the outer leaves of the plant, which he stood on, slowly rise, lifting him closer to the light. He vaguely sensed a smell, a smell that put his mind in a faraway place. And then darkness.”
