Out of a blackened sky, without cause or warning, a scourge of fire leveled Laigosha, the most prominent country in the western world. Surviving the annihilation is Tatum Collence, a forthright corporal of the king’s army, and Zackarius Knapp, first officer and Tatum’s sole friend. Without home or rule, they make a treacherous journey to Taravela, a friendly country to the north. Unbeknownst to the two soldiers, the same force that leveled their home is about to threaten Taravela. Tatum and Zackarius defend against the heinous attack with the help of Amethyst, the king’s daughter bearing a remarkable gift of magic. Fearing the powerful being is not satisfied with the bloodshed, Tatum, Zackarius, and Amethyst embark to stop the powerful entity and protect those still in its path. Their trail quickly leads them to Koren, a country that is twelve years removed from a bloody conflict with Laigosha. Tatum and Zack quickly learn that the bad blood within the country is still evident.
