BLACK CARAVAN IMPRINT: In life, Dr. Lawrence Miller, aka, The Shepherd, was a husband, father, and professor. In the wake of a terrible family tragedy, he now wanders the âSeam,â that ever-shifting place between this world and whatever comes next, helping other troubled souls, guiding and restoring them. In the Path of Souls, the Shepherd happens upon a very unusual district in the Seam, a âhospitalâ for souls who have died in combat. Here warriors of all cultures and eras gather. These lost souls are locked in ever-repeating cycles of violence and trauma. They are still fighting the battles that claimed their lives, struggling against the specters of unresolved fears, broken hopes, and shattered dreams.
