Sundering Star
A Wars of Light and Shadow short story

Long before Mankind sought refugee settlement on the world of Athera, Koriathain served as a secret society, sworn to humanitarian intervention. In a short story from these ancient roots, a young woman bound between two clandestine identities faces a terrible choice, while caught in the teeth of a pivotal encounter that must alter her fate, and the course of history.

Available as an e-book exclusively in the Maitz and Wurtz Studio Shop. This short story is best appreciated after completing Warhost of Vastmark.
