“Nine Ways to Die” – Daniel Foytik

Picking up after “Plummet” and “Broken”, we follow Victoria as she adapts to her new role, and explores the contents of her mysterious library.  When she is led by her music box to a special collection of journals, she finds a way to reconnect with her father who was lost when The Building fractured reality.

In this tale spanning centuries , you’ll learn more about Victoria, her purpose, the building, and more.
