Release Date: March 23, 2015
The angelic amüli race has spent thousands of years perfecting immortality by binding their souls to human hosts. That tenuous grasp on life is slipping because an increasing number of stillborn amüli infants are born without souls.
When Marik’s daughter is born Unsouled, he strives to find out why. Many amüli believe disease is to blame for the Unsouled births, but Marik believes his half-human cousin Clae may be the real catalyst. The Amüli Republic’s oligarchy refuses to take a public stance on Clae’s involvement, instead instructing Marik to capture him in secrecy. Should Clae’s association with the Unsouled epidemic become public, the amüli would rise against all half-breeds and throw the Republic into chaos.
If Marik captures Clae and proves he is causing the mysterious deaths, the Republic may flourish once more. If he fails, his people will descend into a bitter civil war, destroying everything they have accomplished.
