Dream Crasher, Chapter 1: Creature’s Keeper
Creature's Keeper tells the story of Amalie, a tough as nails 12-year old who lives alone with a strange beast she calls Creature. Amalie can't explain what Creature is, but she knows that he has her Papa's eyes. The two have been working together to survive since The Long Winter started, but all of that changes on the day Creature brings home something Amalie hasn't seen in a long time: a living human boy.
