A Pool of Peony

The mist has thickened with a vendetta. A bounty has been offered for answers.⁠

And no one’s story is safe.⁠


It’s been six months since the Storm of Nightmares and Bria has not gone home. With wanted signs plastered throughout Rosada, she has been stuck chasing the so-called Story Collector throughout the Independent City of Mert. Yet, when a break-in occurs in Todd Dray’s shop, it unleashes a chain of events that sends the city into disarray.⁠

With his mind tormented by demons and flashes of his past catching up with him, Brent has been navigating Mert as a half version of himself. When a masked figure offers to help, he accepts, unknowingly stepping into a conflict that has riddled the world for centuries.⁠

The City of Mert has become a target for both the Order of the Effluvium and the Council of Mist Keepers. With fear mounting, Bria, with the help of a mysterious, red-eyed woman, a palaver of immortals, and a silver pool, must decide what part she plays in this oncoming storm.⁠

Can she find the Story Collector before it’s too late?⁠
