Scout’s Journey

For eons, it seems, the Star-Eater has ruled with an iron fist. In the dawn of time, his Scourge inquisitors locked up their last opponent and threw away the key, but in the end, what is lost may be found . . .

A downtrodden crew of survivors hide in the cracks between the worlds, having lost their way, their Goddess and their right to die. . .

A voice drifts among shadows, forgotten, a voice, it is thought, only children can now hear . . .

A rag-tag group of deserters are struggling to find their destiny. Their self-styled prophet is in league with the Scourge, but in the end, only sheep can be HERDed . . .

A young woman, a soldier lost behind enemy lines, finds her strength and becomes the Wayfinder, the catalyst for a struggle that transcends worlds.
