Nightly Owl, Fatal Raven



Since the rise of The Council, an oligarchy of despots and deviants, the legendary Capesman undertakes daily soul collections from Cartesia’s wasteland cities and battlefields. He also frequents Malay Prison, where a vigilante named Shal plots her escape. Armed with a thirst for vengeance and a sharp Shakespearean tongue, Shal must navigate a maze of trauma to save Cartesia and protect her sister from the brutal machinations of Chancellor Doa.

It will require all of Shal’s strength and cunning to resurrect her former army, battle the betrayals of the past, and avenge her father’s death. Will she survive long enough to see the Council fall, or is the Capesman coming for her next?

What They’re Saying

“To put it simply, if you are a fan of Conan the Barbarian (the good one) and Fury Road, then you will dig this yarn. It’s violent, brash, visceral and gives zero *expletive deleted*’s if it offends you. At the same time, rooting this violence deeply in the characters allows it to hit like a beast.”—Anton Cancre, Cemetery Dance
