In this imperfect world, the stories are what make it beautiful. Journeying the land and visiting the unique countries all around is Kino and her talking motorcycle, Hermes. Together, the two travel from place to place, experiencing new cultures and people. But despite how enjoyable some lands may be, Kino will only stay in each country for three days or less with just enough time to gather stories and memories before continuing on the open road. While some countries can be pleasant and enjoyable, others are dark and sinister. From lands with legalized murder to cruel hierarchies, Kino experiences it all while keeping her wits-and a pair of guns-about her.
