Calm; Decay Volume 1
The Hunters Are Coming
For a century, the shrouded world of Chryssus has crept upon the haven of Passerine. As a child born between these worlds, Ashra Swallow's very survival is called into question by the laws keeping the peace-seeking Passerinians safe. With nowhere to hide, Ashra is forced to flee into to the murky depths of Chryssus, where more than mindless monstrosities wait for him in the dark. Who can be trusted, and what will Ashra have to leave behind in order to survive among those hungry enough to escape their shadows?
