The Ivy City is dying. It flails under a sea of the risen dead, the holy churches broken, the nobles largely destroyed, the population leaderless and alone, the city itself is bleeding and growing cold. Tattered crimson ribbons of blood fill the gutters. A despicable wizard, scion of the noble line, has shoved the Ivy City to the brink of death as he seeks what he sees as his rightful throne. Doomed by his forbidden love, discarded by the crown, forgotten by the people, a disgraced hero rises from the ashes to combat the rising darkness.
"Dorse brings a voice and tone perfect for the tale"
To destroy the darkness, one needs only a single candle. A simple baker's assistant, Megan dreams of grand adventure...of danger...of love. Not content with her safe, quiet drudgery, she finds escape where she may, daring when she can to sneak into a library to lose herself among the books, where learning and adventure abound, never imagining the course this small rebellion would set her on.
