WB_Cover_Final-smAn ex-slave turned high bureaucrat and her long-lost childhood friend, a hard-drinking waitress/disillusioned meteorologist with hidden powers—one must choose between immortal power and the future of our world as the boundaries between dimensions begin to crumble, while the other desperately ignores dark visions of this world in ruins as she watches a blackening sky and whips out another stack of buttermilk pancakes.
