Raiders of the Dry Coast
by Billy Wong
Former bodyguard to a wizard who dried up the sea on which the surrounding countries depend, Julius cuts a deal to help stabilize the realm in exchange for amnesty. He hires brawling adventurers Claudia and Leon, and learns to open his heart to the carefree wanderers who become his first real friends. But when his past comes back to haunt him, his new friendships and conscience will be tested.
