Thalamus: C12 (Paperback)
Robert Bender has reconnected with his family, but for how long?
The struggle to get back to his wife and kids hasn't resulted in the jubilation and peace of mind he thought it would. His friends on the other side face an oncoming storm that only Robert can see and the pills he uses to communicate with their world are running out faster than Becca's patience.
Robert isn't the first survivor from ArenasCorp to face such a crossroads. Thomas, or C12 as he was known at the prison, holds the key to understanding why there are different timelines. To share his knowledge with Robert, they'll both have to return to the scene of immense horrors and face a familiar foe.
They'll all soon realize the same thing -when the dust of life settles and the floodwaters of inescapable death recede, all that is left are the reflections of choices made and people loved.
If you thought there'd be a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.
