This is my story. I wish I didn't have to endanger you by telling you the tragedy that is my life. But I have no choice. You are my last hope. If you care about the universe, keep reading. Do what I say, and we'll survive. We all will. However, I won't force you. I will understand if you don't wish to put your life in danger by doing something for someone you don't know. I just hope you like sudden, painful death.

I'm not kidding.

This is your chance. Make the most important decision of your life. Help save the world, or put this book down and forget I ever existed. Choose now.

Hurry up, please, this is rather important and I don't have all day.

If you're still reading, you chose to help. There is no turning back now.

I am Hestya Lilac, and I am a rain guider. I know that doesn't sound dangerous, or important. But it is. More than you know. Rain guiders are the most important creatures in this dimension. It is all training and near-death experiences. Everything you know about the world is about to change. Forever.

Don't say I didn't warn you.
