Welcome back to Diamond City where hell just busted loose.
Senator Rice, hater of all things magic, declared martial law following the recent bombings. His goal? Arrest all magic-wielders and take control of the mines. To get what he wants, he doesn't care how many people have to die.
How is Riley supposed to stop an army without starting a bigger war? It's going to take deceit, timing, sleight of hand, and a whole lot of luck. To help, she's got her family, friends, and a collection of mobsters, who will probably slide a blade between her ribs the second she turns her back. But beggars can't be choosers, and playing it safe is a losing proposition.
Unfortunately, there's more going on than anybody realizes, and the real enemy has yet to show his face.
When push comes to shove, can Riley risk sacrificing the people she loves to save a city of people she doesn't even know? Risk her people, her family on a plan almost certainly doomed to fail?
For Riley there is really only one choice.
What would you choose?
