Zan loathes the Pentagons, but she is tasked to save them. The rescue missions lead her to confront a long-buried past and a deep-seated hatred.

Zan loves her coffee, her parang and her best (and only) friend Rani. She is focused on serving out her time with an underground rebel group when she meets Ray, a mysterious fighter everyone fears. Paired to battle grotesque creatures in the other-worldly Forbidden Paths, she discovers she and Ray have more in common than she thinks.
