In this postapocalyptic
fantasy, a sea of sand swallows everything but the past.
In an endless sea of sand
drifts the Mud Whale, a floating island city of clay and magic. In its chambers
a small community clings to survival, cut off from its own history by the
shadows of the past.
Chakuro and the other
Marked children have freed the Unmarked from the Amonlogian dungeon, but their
rescue mission is far from over. The people of the Mud Whale still need to get
back to their island home, and the path to safety is blocked by imperial
soldiers. Even worse, Orca is determined to secure Ouni in order to carry out
his cataclysmic plans!
