Story Summary

In Ren the woodcutter's son's world, terrible creatures called Shadow Imps steal people's shadows leaving them aimless sleepwalkers. When Ren hears that ages before the Emperor of the Moon had once helped the people of Earth, he decides that he must climb the bell tower of the church that connects earth to moon and beg his help once again ... unfortunately the bell tower is swarming with Shadow Imps.
