Daniel and Talia live worlds apart – literally. Daniel is an office worker at an undertakers. Talia does anything she can to stay out of trouble and keep her belly full. Both of their worlds change forever when Daniel stumbles through a rift and Talia rescues him.
Narith is a dying city in desperate need of a hero. It is divided into those who have everything and those forced to indenture themselves or scrabble through the ruins to survive. For years grey men have stalked the streets, desiccating their victims with a single touch.
Set against the backdrop of Talia’s ruined city, the two join up to find the reason for the grey men and inadvertently find friendship and the key to Talia’s forgotten past.
