The Mission

Galen, a keeper, and his pupil Raffi live in the fantastical world of Anara which boasts seven moons and a vast city now plunged in eternal darkness. After being discovered by a horseman, Galen and Raffi are delivered to a band of thieves. The head thief, Alberic, steals their only relic—a blue crystal box that Raffi holds dear. He promises to return the relic if they complete a mission for him. They must find a certain Sekoi—a fur-covered creature—who stole their gold, and bring him back to them.

The Crow

As Galen and Raffi travel to the dark city of Tasceron, they find a note which suggests that the Crow is still alive. The Crow is an ancient messenger who flew between the Makers and the Gods. If it is still alive, then Galen and Raffi could restore the Order and save their crumbling world.

The Spy

Meanwhile, a young member of the Watch named Carys is on their trail. Galen is wanted by the Watch and instead of capturing him and the boy, she befriends them, planning to betray them when the time is right. But as they travel to Tasceron, she lets her guard down and realizes that maybe the Watch aren’t the good guys after all.

The Bottom Line

The Dark City is the first of four books in Catherine Fisher’s Relic Master series. Each of the books will be released one month apart, beginning with The Dark City in May. This novel is great for those who like a mix of fantasy and sci-fi, and adventures set in different worlds.

I don't support him at all but my concern is if he is removed then we have to deal with Mike Pence who could be a lot worse. His political ideals would have a bigger impact on the US if he took power rather than leaving it for trump to deal with. Becides if we're smart since trump does not have political expirence we can shy him away from the bad stuff if we make it convincing enough for him to change his mind

Today, several states had thousands of women joining together to fight against Trump. Celebrities like Madonna, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cirus showed up, some gave speeches, women shouted and raised their signs. Will Trump budge? What do you think? Should women be able to have abortion? Should Trump cut funds of women?

I think it loads faster, compiles faster, and is just overall smoother... The only thing that the Steam version has that this one does not is access to the 'workshop,' in which you can easily share and play other people's games. Ah, cool! X3 I'll pass on your advice to my friend so someone may benefit from it, as I don't use the application anymore. Thanks ^-^
