Unfortunately, his help comes at a terrible cost.
Meanwhile, Iris has left town and set out to explore the island, searching for a lost town that supposedly pre-dates Steadfall. What she finds, however, is a chilling reminder of the island’s savagery, and a warning that more horror is to come. Soon, the residents of Steadfall find themselves fighting for their lives, while Asher starts to experience terrifying glimpses of the past that was wiped from her mind.
