Forced to be a Hero
Giovanna Randazzo is a smuggler who lives on the outskirts of society, making her living by taking advantage of each island having their own concept of what is legal and illegal. When she comes across a scientist trying to escape the city, she is pulled into a much larger story that will take her on a whirlwind adventure to try to keep her new friend safe while finding who, or what, is behind all of it.
“There is no alternative to the future!” is a widespread motto in New York. Used initially to welcome a hopeful future, the phrase soon justified every action the Barons took to control their islands. For those who lived on an island, otherwise known as glorified company towns, there often was no way to object to their Baron. You are the only link between islands, will you be their alternative?
