Arjun Gupta

Penny is a traveler: a rare magician who can travel to worlds beyond our earthly realm. Penny is the proud outcast of the group, but when The Beast cuts off his hands he begins to spiral out of control. He is desperate for a solution and will stop at nothing to fix himself. In the midst of his healing journey, Penny surprises himself with acts of selflessness that demonstrate a shift from loner to friend. Penny's journey leads him to sign a somewhat eternal contract with The Library, the governing force of The Neitherlands. But after a brief trip to the Library- owned Poison Room, Penny may be in even more trouble than he bargained for.
