What happens when a sword-swinging heroine, motivated by an ambiguous prophecy, leads a band of fighters against a dark army and fails in spectacular fashion? She waits 800 years until the signs confirm they have might have another chance at defeating an ancient enemy. Oriel Toussaint looks 16. Her passport says that she’s 21. If she had a birth certificate, you would know she’s actually 1,248. Having lived for centuries, she’s trying to get the band back together so they can try it again.
