An age has passed since the fall of the old world and the rise of the malignant Dust people. Despite the terrors of this new age, humanity lingers within the wreckage of civilization, bound together only by the promise of a better existence in the next life. Yet not all are satisfied by this stagnant dogma. Within the ramshackle and smoggy city of Fort Palmer, eight-year-old Doran Osrik and his new friend, Alena, stand apart from the human Union, struggling alone to regain their races lost glory. Unfortunately the unquiet dead and forces of faith do not take kindly to those who try to fix a broken world. As Doran and Alenas quest to save the future leads each of them down a dark and ruinous path, they are cast apart across the lands of Limbo where they must overcome the monstrous dusters and the fear within themselves if they ever hope to see each other again.
