Lark has spent his life raised to believe that on his 25th birthday he will journey into the world to slay monsters and save the human race. However, three months before he’s supposed to do this, his home is raided by Federal Agents, who claim magic isn’t real, and that he has been in a cult this whole time. A fantastic story about trauma, healing, magic, and belief, this book had me questioning what was real and what was a lie.
