Mage Meralda’s perilous airship journey across the vast Great Sea made her a hero.
Her discovery of the Arc may doom her world.
The Arc, a mysterious metal structure hanging 10,000 feet above the stormy sea, is singing. Tasked by the King to decipher the Arc’s strange song, Meralda discovers plans for an outlandish machine hidden in the song’s mathematical lyrics.
With sharp-tongued vegetable familiar Mug at her side, Meralda embarks on an unexpected journey across the void. Together they face ravenous beasts, ancient engines, and the most diabolical creature of all - Meralda's own long-lost mother.
With nothing but her wits, her Sight, and her determination to return home and find a decent cup of coffee, Meralda vows to lead her tiny band to safety. But her long journey home also means facing an old sorrow, and a singularly unpleasant truth.
As monsters close in, can Meralda prevail where thousands before her failed and perished?
Join Meralda, Mug, and Donchen for this third installment of the Paths of Shadow series.
