From publisher blurb:
Imagine a savage, uncharted world that has forgotten the touch of civilisation and reclaimed its barbaric past. Imagine vast tracts of unclaimed land, where feral beasts prowl and the biggest rule without contest. Imagine an endless frontier, waiting to be conquered.
This is Sanctuary, a harsh, unforgiving land. So are its people, who carve a daily living from its surface through blood, sweat, and tears. As men and women of the frontier, they look towards the horizon, and see their own potential mirrored back at them.
The unclaimed territories, or the Expanse, as the locals call it, represent sheer unadulterated opportunity: The opportunity to hit the motherload and succeed beyond one’s wildest dreams - along with the opportunity to fall so far that rock bottom merely feels like a bump on the way down.
For those who are able to grasp their fate with both hands, life on the frontier is a tempting prospect. No law, no authority, no rules - a perpetual battlefield where might makes right and the quick often live longer than the brave.
But opportunity does not come easy, or cheaply. For every accomplishment, there are countless failures. For every legend, hundreds are forgotten. For every hero, there are plenty of dusty corpses, scorched to a crisp on the rocky plains.
