Life is hard in the Pit-lands, a desert world filled with sand and sickly scrub and little else. Living is no more than just surviving. As the summer sun sets on his work in the sparse fields he farms, Caide stumbles upon a relic from a time so long ago, the world he lives in has no name for it, and yet in that moment, his life is about to collide with that nameless past.
On the land where his family has struggled to survive, those ties are suddenly and brutally severed. With no future left to hold on to, Caide seeks revenge the only way he knows how; he vows to track down his father’s killer and leave his home forever as he seeks a new life away from the pain as some part of him seeks to understand.
