Edgewater is a small city near Orlando, Florida, created along the Indian River and close to the Mosquito Lagoon.
Its name implies, according to urban dictionaries, a dangerous, shady site, perfect to start the apocalypse. It was not what I observed when I was there; My experience at Edgewater was that of a quiet town, with quiet people and strong guardians along the lagoon that made me feel in an ancient place.
