They Met in a TavernElijah Menchaca
The Starbreakers went their separate ways after they failed a whole city. Seven years later, when a hefty bounty is placed on their heads, they must choose between hanging onto their past grudges or working together to save the day.
They used to be heroes... and it was all downhill from there.
The Starbreakers were your classic teenage heroes. Using their combined powers and skills, they were the most successful group of glintchasers in Corsar. But that all changed the day the city of Relgen died. The group went their separate ways, placing the blame on each other.
Brass carried on as a solo act. Snow found work as a notorious assassin. Church became a town’s spiritual leader. Angel was the owner of a bar and inn. And after overcoming his own guilt, Phoenix started a new life as a family man.
Seven years after their falling out, a hefty bounty is placed on their heads. Phoenix tries to reunite the Starbreakers before everything they have left is taken from them. But a lot can change in seven years. And if mending old wounds was easy, they would have done it a long time ago.
“[A] moody and entertaining fantasy debut centers on estranged friends who are forced to reconcile to survive... Menchaca spins a fast-paced story, expertly balancing scenes that tease out the strained dynamic between the Starbreakers with the high-stakes mystery of who has put a bounty on their heads. ” — Publishers Weekly
