With Adelle's farm behind him, Brent again finds himself alone. The only hope he has is the knowledge of the town-going road that will lead him to Adelle's cousin, Lemm, who will supposedly help him on his journey.
The only question is: will Lemm truly be on his side?

Even if that means taking it from everybody else.
