Messenger is the story of a band of survivors making their way in a post-apocalyptic future. Akiara Kenakobe escapes her tribal home on the wasteland following the death of her best friend, Luke. With only her sword for company, she soon begins to make new friends: a Messenger on his way to the afterlife, two fuzzy Chios named Eldora and Finnegan, and someone completely unexpected. Her absence wasn’t missed at home, of course, and the crew soon finds themselves at the head of a pursuit through the ruins of the Northeast United States.
