Who is left when the heroes fall?
Corayne lives at the end of the world. Year after year, she watches her pirate mother sail away to adventures she'll never share with Corayne. So when a mysterious immortal and deadly assassin appear on Corayne's doorstep telling her she is the last member of a dying bloodline, and the only one who can save the world, Corayne seizes the chance to have her own adventure.
But the world is in graver danger than they ever imagined; Corayne and her rag-tag group of allies are alone in a world that is slowly coming apart at the seams with little but their fading hope to guide them.
Now is not the age of heroes, but courage can bloom even in the darkest corners. And it just might be enough to save everything.
