Enforcer Annia Melcott is no stranger to adversity.
A damned good investigator and a loyal friend, she’s fought rebels and terrorists, taken down dangerous criminal gangs, and risked herself time and again for the sake of her city.
But when Annia’s life goes up in smoke, she decides she’s had enough. Hoping to lose herself in an adventure or two, she travels to the Southern continent for a much-needed respite.
The first mission she snags is simple enough — escort two mage children and their guardian back to their ancestral home, and make sure they don’t get killed or kidnapped by bandits. But while Southia’s verdant lands are beautiful and compelling, they are also rife with ancient, wild magic that the world has forgotten.
Evil shamans, powerful goddesses, and vengeful ghosts lurk in unexpected places, and if Annia isn’t careful, she might very well become their next victim…
