In an alternate 1800’s America, where magic is real and dragons soar through the skies of the American frontier -Topher had a good life, mostly. It wasn’t great, but what can a young African girl expect living on the Edge of the World?She had a shack that she shared with her Ma, she knew what vendors she could pocket an apple from, and was better than anyone with a spitshot. What more could a girl in the slums expect?Then that chucklehead Wasco rolled out of the mountains like a toppled boulder. Topher had figured he might be good for a penny or two if she showed him around. Before she knew it he had her trompin’ around the Blacklands, getting shot at, almost eaten and damn near gutted by some bull-headed dandy!Jacob, who was about the handsomest gunfighter a body could imagine, might be some kind of monster. Old Ying turned out to be one of them wizards from the storybooks and Li had a magic sword!All because someone went and took Bella and Wasco aimed to get her back, and Topher had been too stubborn not to follow him.Yeah, it had been a good enough life. She just wasn’t sure she was going to make it back to it, or if she even wanted to.
