In the Realm beyond the Seventh Circle, a young princess prays to the mother goddess for a man to fight her enemies. She asks for one skilled in the arts of war and says she doesn’t want a dull man. She wants a man who will excite passions and put the plans of her scheming enemies to naught. By chance, a suitable candidate is conducting bizarre experiments beside a holy spring in the Realm beyond the Sixth Circle (our realm). He arrives in the princess’ camp and her prayers are answered ... but not as she imagined.
