Carved from the remnants of a long dead world, Ebon has only two things on his mind from one day to the next. The first is the safety of his brother Crassus. The second is the search for home. And when he and his brother find a massive thirty-story tall technological wonderland, he wonders if fate has given them both. But what they find inside is so much more than just a house. They find a connection to the past, a family they thought impossible.
But there are other things in the wasteland intent on taking it from them. Like the masters of the great walking cities. As the terrifying armies descend on the tribe's stronghold, they are given a choice. Give up your home and return to the waste, or watch your tribe ripped to shreds with terrifying cruelty.
Ebon is faced with a choice that cuts to the very core of his tribe's identity. How many compromises are you willing to make to secure your safety? What monster might you call friend if it meant survival?
