Prophecy gives herald to Hyacinth, who will purge. Hyacinth, who will cleanse. Hyacinth, who will bring Calamity.
Several hundred years ago, on her seventeenth birthday, that prophesy was fulfilled, leaving the world a barren wasteland. Its population decimated and its surface cracked and marred, it has become a world of survival and savagery, pitting man against nature, and man against itself. Hyacinth, a name spoken of in hushed tones and furtive whispers, is now a creature of legend who brings bad omens and ill fortune to those who cross her path.
Dinessa Lemphry never quite believed in the tales of Hyacinth, always believing them to be old stories mothers told their daughters to keep them from sneaking out at night. Until she meets the haunted legend herself, wandering and unchanged despite three hundred years since the destruction of the world. But change is in the air and a strange magic is beginning to stir. Though generations have passed down the legend of Hyacinth the Cataclysm, there's another part to the prophesy that is all but forgotten, remembered and spoken of by only a few.
The oracles long lost calls for redemption and salvation. Hyacinth, who will forgive. Hyacinth, who will save. Hyacinth, who will Absolve.
