Alak's world fell apart when he was ten years old. Since then he's been alone. He was content with his life until that fateful day shortly after his fifteenth birthday when he met Isabella.
Embervein was supposed to be just another stop along the road, another hustle, another city with alleys to sleep in at night. But Fate intervened, putting him in the path of the prince and his friend and eventually Isabella Bramfield. Isabella was a bright light in the midst of Alak's dark life, and for the first time in a long time, he felt joy and hope. He had a future. He had worth. He had friends.
But nothing good lasts forever.
