This is a novel about an alien civilization that was pushed out of millennia of stagnation by a single individual who turned out, contrary to everyone’s expectations, to be a superhero. It is a sweeping and epic story of scientific discovery and cultural change. It is an intimate and personal story of trauma and redemption. And for some people, it may even be an inspirational story about how a single individual with a gift can fight to overcome their anxiety and alienation to change the world.

But this story begins very simply (as most stories do). In this case, it begins with a person whose name is Tagg.
