THE LEGEND OF CABRUS
An urchin boy, and a myth beyond belief. Sometimes even the most fantastic tales turn out to be true.
Enu is a homeless child in the city of Cabrus. He and a swarm of other children fill their bellies by stealing goods and bringing them to their matron, Auntie—a woman whose approval Enu has always desperately craved.
But one night, Enu's friends return to their hideout with tales of a mythic figure stalking the streets. None can agree on the details—does he have a bear's hide? Did he truly fly? Can he breathe fire?—but all swear they saw him.
All except Enu.
His quest for excitement—and a few ill-gotten coins—will carry Enu into the peril of Cabrus' streets in the dead of night.
And he will learn for himself the truth behind the legend.
