Teaser The second novel of the series focuses on Ren Kogane, who is introduced in Chapter 52 of Kintsugi. Overlapping Kintsugi, this book begins in December of 2018 and ends a little after. Ren has early onset, severe bipolar one disorder with psychotic features. This story is his journey from being completely debilitated by his illness to a much healthier state. He is transformed by his own desire to change and the love and support of family and friends. Because Ren's story overlaps and is affected by Erik and Musashi's story, their story is expanded as seen by Ren's eyes.
