THE LOST, The Final Illusion 1
(De förlorade) Henrik Fexeus
Ky looked at the hole. It was about fifty centimeters wide and stretched nearly a meter in hight. She took a deep breat, stepped up on her bed and carefully put her left leg inside. She slid over the edge and was inside. It got dark. And immediately she felt a wave of panic coming over her.
When Ky accidentally cause a hole in the wall of her room, she finds something that was never meant for her. Something that will change her life forever. Meanwhile, in another part of Stockholm, Adam begins to doubt his sanity when reality transforms itself before his eyes. Is someone joking with him, or is he actually going mad for real?
A silver gray car follows every step he takes. Men whose faces constantly shrouded in shade and mystery. Underground tunnels where it is hard to breathe, but easy to get lost.
Ky’s and Adam’s paths cross and they are drawn into an adventure, a claustrophobic one, rising questions on what is truth and what is reality. Is the world as we know it just an illusion?

”Enchanting, confusing and captivating.”
”There is something in Fexeus’s story that feels original and new, and it makes me curious. I can’t wait to see how this develops and where the threads lead in the next book.”
”Matrix-feeling in hidden Stockholm. Is anything actually what it seems to be?”
”I was totally fascinated by the tunnel system under Stockholm. It makes me wonder how it really looks like under the ground here in Stockholm.”
”I like the tempo – there’s a lot going on and you never get bored. Awesome! And I love books that take place in Stockholm. The proximity, the tempo, the tube – it feels close and genuine. Fexeus managed to add a couple of fun details that had me check around a little extra, made me look for details, when I moved around in town the week after reading the book.”
