On the formerly fractured plane of Alara, Chandra must protect a village in grave peril—no big deal, especially with a little help from fellow Planeswalker Jace Beleren. But what happens when the dust of battle clears, and Chandra is forced to contend with a problem that can’t be burned away? From the explosive creative team of James Asmus (Gambit) and Eric Koda (Extraordinary X-Men) comes an essential addition to Magic’s ongoing story that fans won’t want to miss!
