The nine kingdoms of Celadmore are at war.
The people suffer under tyrants that strive to gain land and power in the struggle for superiority. Kasnata, Queen of the Order and Queen of Nosfa leads her armies against the people of Delma. A war she did not want to fight, but her husband, the King of Nosfa, Mercia Nosfa VI has forced her hand.
Leinad, the heir to the throne of Nosfa and son of Kasnata, is held hostage in the city of Grashindorph where revolution is beginning. Hermia, mother of Mercia and former Queen of Nosfa leads the revolution against her son, a revolution to end the wars and tyranny that their people suffer under.
Kasna and Kia are safe from their father in the Oasis of Tulna, but Duke Kelmar DeLacey, Regent of Delma, still hunts for them. Kasnata's empire is growing and her legacy is being forged through war, not diplomacy, a mantle her people will carry down the ages. But there is more at work than any mortal knows, their lives, though fleeting, will form the realm and the consequences of their actions will be felt for centuries to come.
“The people of Grashindorph screamed and wept. The soldiers that remained to guard the city had been turned against the people. Innocent people were dragged from the homes in the middle of the day as well as the night. Those that were taken without a fight were not seen again, those that tried to resist were boarded up in their homes with their families and the buildings set alight, so that all that was within them was tuned to ash. Helez and Asahel could do nothing to help the people of Grashindorph. They watched in silence from the rooftops, and followed those that were arrested. They knew where those accused of treachery were being held, but with only two of them, they could not attempt to rescue them all. So the two men waited, gathering what information they could, praying that the Gibborim would soon be able to move against the king and end the madness.“
