In the post-Break world of superpowers, not everyone is lucky enough to be born in the Free States. Some labor under the repressive lash of Steel's regime. Others die young on the war-torn streets of the dirty South. And then there's Old Baltimore, where Lord Legion's thousand Eyes fill the night sky.
Samara and Cornelius James are two children growing up too fast on the streets of Old Baltimore. The only thing they know for certain is that their lives and their deaths are to be used as Lord Legion deems fit.
Escape is impossible. Rebellion is futile. Hope is a fairy tale.
Until the day a stranger is spotted on the streets of the city, and the world they know starts to shift.
Stories From a Post-Break World are short tales that take place in the same post-apocalyptic superhero world as See These Bones and the rest of the Murder of Crows trilogy.
