The Ruins of Crestfall
by K. Vale Nagle
Something haunts the desert, something that was once an opinicus.
Cherine—scholar, adventurer, metal-beak, and popular kidnapping victim. While his old mate and friends fight for his amnesty, he lives out his exile in the aneda forest. When Zeph and Kia approach him about hunting down the infamous Nighthaunt, he’s all too happy to leave his hovel behind.
