Forsaken. Condemned. Destined.
Scandalously accused of murder in his hometown, Godren is compelled to flee for his innocent life, only to take up crime for survival on the streets. He knew he would have to adapt - but he never meant to adapt so well.
Too late, he learns he has woven a reputation into the interests of corrupt professionals - namely Mastodon, the crime queen of the city. A sorceress of sorts, she has been avoided by the law more than hunted. But bounty hunters are becoming increasingly reckless in character, and, unbound by the particulars of the law, are realizing their capacity to grapple with her.
Due to their evolving nerve, Mastodon has put a price on their own heads. Godren faces a commission of leading a new breed of bounty hunter against the originals. Doomed if he refuses such a ruthless woman her wishes, Godren has little choice but to comply, when all he wants is to escape the injustice of the corrupt world he has been plunged into.
Will there prove to be no honor in survival? Or does fate work in mysterious ways, and do the forsaken still shelter secret ambitions?
