Two reluctant heroes. One hell of a long day.
Amidst harrowing famine and deadly aliens who hunt humans and turn them into scaly mutants, Jarek is having a pretty good day.
He survived Earth's invasion, he still has his ship, and his prized exo-suit and AI-companion are safe and sound. But when his weaponized suit is stolen, he'll stop at nothing to get it back. Even if he has to break into the alien king's stronghold to do it.
On the way to spring his imprisoned informant, though, an energy-slinging arcanist named Rachel lays claim to the same captive. When he sees her throwing around grown men with telekinetic powers, Jarek has no room to argue. Especially not when teaming up may be the only way to get out of the king's stronghold alive.
One thing's for certain. Jarek didn't sign up for this crap. And neither did his fiery new friend. But together, they might just be strong enough to pull it off. Assuming they don't kill each other first....
