THE OTHER SIDE Ⅰ:
The Other Side is a psychological thriller, with mystery, dark fantasy, and sci-fi sprinkled in a few a places. The series vows to lead to a dark dystopian future.
There is a nefarious cult at work in Aurorae County. They are gaslighting and accusing people of committing horrible crimes and for having a mental disorder.
At least, this is what Leon Granttley secretly swears by. He and only he believes that his mental disorder, (dissociative identity
disorder) isn't real. Even with the ten photographs taken of his assaulted friend, Allie Reincath, he chooses his truth over hers. His friends, family,
and society take her side.
Leon blames a devil in his mind. A voice. One with a conscious and perhaps an ulterior motive. When questioned, he pins all the wrongs that occurred in his life on this voice. Leon has but one hope...to graduate from The Earthshine Facility as a Knight, and perhaps, leave this disorder behind once and for all. However. He can't leave this facility if he doesn't accept what he did to Allie. It seems that those he loves won't accept him either.
Is Leon guiltless? Or is there more to what happened with him and Allie? Find the truth of his story, on, The Other Side.
A DEEPER LOOK [MINOR SPOILERS]
The Lunae Lux has kidnapped Leon and brought him to a world that reflects his. This voice in his mind, was never just a voice. He was a living a breathing person, according to this principle: Reflection Principle #1:
There was a man named Festano Igor, who learned of these Reflection Principles, and wondered what would happen if he would trap Earthlings in permanent misery. He asked himself a dangerous question: What if this would bring happiness to those in his world-Planet Heart? A world with dying crops, animals, and climates. A world where everything there is almost backward.
Heartlings have one desire. To leave their world for something better. Something that can only be found in their reflections' lives. This is the truth of the voice in Leon's mind.
Kidnapped against his will, Leon is forced to live this reflections life with one goal in mind. To return to Planet Earth. The cult known as the Lunae Lux does not take to this idea so kindly, and as such...uses their efforts to trap him.

THE OTHER SIDE ⅠⅠ
In The Other Side I, Society accused Leon Granttley of assaulting his childhood friend. He blamed the incident on the voice in his mind.
The result was being sent to the Earthshine Facility where he was forced to accept his DID and told that he needed to change and blend with the normal people in society.
Not long after, he was kidnapped from his home on Planet Earth and learned that the voice in his mind was none other than his reflection, Néol Yelltnarg. While stuck on Planet Heart, the two (others) were recruited by The Neo Knights, a large group of Earthling's who were also snatched from their homes and forced to live out their reflection's miserable lives.
This all makes The Other Side II a story filled with action and adventure.
One early morning after Leon's rescue, a mysterious phone call alerts the Neo Knights to a possible ambush from their enemies, The Lunae Lux. Many panic and attempt to leave Planet Heart, but the Lunae Lux are ruthless and leave a clear warning: Stay where you belong. Stuck and afraid, tensions swell within this rebellious organization.
There are thousands of members within the Neo Knights who have have not seen their family for decades. Parents have been separated from children. Husbands and wives have been away from one another for thirty plus years. Careers, schools, and relationships of all kinds were put to a halt. Members who miss their families want to return to their home planet. Others suggest staying and taking down Festano - the leader of the Lunae Lux and the one responsible for switching people between planets.
To this nefarious army, it doesn't matter whether the Neo Knights remain as hostages on Planet Heart or return to Earth as fugitives.
All that matters is that they crush their spirits.
Witness the beginning of the end.

THE OTHER SIDE ⅠⅠⅠ
The Other Side III a thrilling epic with lots of adventure, action, forbidden romance, horror, mystery, and much more.
In the end of TOS II, Leon, Néol, Ombretta, and Miles barely escape the explosion at the Libri Cafe.
The four know they must find Selim who is just as desperate as they are to find means of peace within what is left of the Neo Knights.
But something strange happens while they're in the 11th dimension's crystal bridge. For the first time, the bridge shatters, and down the four go into space. Out into the multiverse where they've never been.
At this same moment, the Lunae Lux is dealing with their own issues. Strange demonic manifestations with strange aesthetics ruthlessly kill members in the Lunae Lux. No one knows what they are, or where they come from.
These things say the strangest things. Only a reader with a mirror can decipher them.
The Lunae Lux organization appears to be thriving on the outside, now finally establishing more and more facilities by day, but core members of the organization like Sepia know their true secrets. And that's that the organization is falling apart from the inside.
The trusted trio made up of Thorne, Faviané, and Noire are starting to have doubts about their leader...just as he is in himself.
As Miles said before the bridge collapsed.
Everything. Is falling. Apart.
