On a seemingly regular day the clouds darken and fill the sky above Legend Station. Its folklore quietly prepares to unleash its mystic powers on those chosen from the crowds about to pass — when a girl, somewhere, shrieks as she bolts upright in her bed awakening from a dream. He hair sticks to her sweaty face and the image of cold hands reaching at her still terrifies her mind — a sign of what’s to come. In the next twelve hours, four unassuming visitors will enter the station to be pulled into their pasts and relive tragic events they had caused. Trina; a posh woman of the night; Drake; an investment advisor; Trevor; an enthusiast of classic Mustang sports-cars; and Vance; a police officer, will become trapped by the station's supernal force, as it reveals their secretive pasts before imposing a horrifying redemption. A story that is graphic, touching, action packed, and somber, Legend Station was partly inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and influenced by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, as it sets the stage for its sequel which unfolds the grand design behind the dreadful tale.

The story uses the symbols of earth, wind, air and fire, which are also symbols of Buddhism. However, it is not the intention of the story to imply a basis of Buddhist faith, or any one faith. To that end, the following quote from The King James Bible, irrespective of the specific faith, aptly captures the essence of the story. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.” – Ezekiel 25-17, The King James Bible. The story does not propose any significance to faith itself, but may be considered to have a basis of agnostic ideology. Agnostic — defined as a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God. The novel’s sequel offers an explanation of the underlying ideology of the two books.
