The writings of the Wormling Seers of Madison are turning dark. The Library of Unknown Reaches has locked its doors. From the Shield of Rust in Detroit to the Mile-High Fastness of Denver, in the court of the Sun Empress and the gambling halls of the Riverside Freehold, conversations begin to grow sour. Somewhere over the far horizon, trouble is coming.
Our intrepid heroes don’t know that yet. Deep in the Americana wilderness of southern Illinois, the land they call Little Egypt, they’ve escaped their prison bars and they’re running long and far to safety. They seek vengeance, power, safety, and even fun – but before their running is done, they’ll be looking at bars again. In their strange new world, there’s bonds and traps hidden behind every corner and every spoken word. And when night falls, what bars break and what bars hold will be a matter of life and death.
