AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Months earlier, the city had been over-run by the Mothers, river-dwelling creatures who laid their eggs across the city and toppled buildings in their wake. Now a former egg-exterminator is called upon to destroy one last egg, an act that brings up his guilty memories from the night of the attack.
