Chapter One: Meji picks her quest and sets out. More or less the same as the original Chapter One, just with more art and better spaced dialogue.
Chapter Two: Sarine kills Darren in the bar. Meji arrives in Saus, meets and rescues Chris, and decides to get the hell out of town. Obviously, this is not the original Chapter Two. Again, more pages, better lettering.
Chapter Three: Meji wanders in the woods and meets Jon. At the very end of the chapter, a hooded stranger appears from the darkness and apologetically beats up a priest. More pages, better lettering. That's gonna be a theme, so I'll stop saying it now.
Chapter Four: Jon awakens Meji with early morning gunfire and they walk to Emerylon. Meanwhile in Eastern Veracia, Sara beats up a bunch of guys with guns.
Chapter Five: Meji tries to sneak into the Heretic Knowledge Vault and it goes about as well as expected. She meets Ian, and he sets fire to things. At the end of the chapter, Jon meets with the Gewehr Wraiths and emerges from his meeting straight into the Arsonist Errant Fan Club.
Chapter Six: Sarine's flashback of her pregnancy and the flashback of her husband's death run together in one big sucker punch of tragedy. She emerges from her reverie to continue asking questions in Saus. Back in Emerylon, Meji and Ian sneak out of the city and Jon catches up with them in time to prove he has an excellent understanding of how Meji's mind works.
Chapter Seven: Our trio plus Ellis wander in the woods talking to each other, and when they camp we get to hear a whole lot of mythology that sounds irrelevant but isn't. At the very end of the chapter Sarine hunts down a thug in Saus.
Chapter Eight: Meji and Ian bond, Jon shoots Ellis, they try to decipher the book a bit, and then Meji takes a bath. Come morning, our merry band of criminals gets back on the road. I really wanted the bit with Sarine hunting down the thug to be at the end of this chapter instead so it could be a stinger for the whole volume, but it didn't fit. C'est la vie.
