Would you use a magic that threatened to kill you? One that burnt you so badly that strangers became afraid?
Thomas and Lucy must make this choice if they wish to save the lives of those they love.
And, for Thomas, it is his only hope of finding alive the woman who died in his arms. To his friend's concern, and fear of madness, Thomas refuses to give up the hope that Aina will be reborn.
Meanwhile, the Empire believes it has total control of the planet of Prometheus.
No other planet has provided such a rich and vibrant nature, one that is now fully open for exploitation. The Emperor himself has journeyed to this remote planet to celebrate the final forward movement as man conquers nature.
But hidden deep within the ancient forest, there are forces that would resist. Thomas and Lucy fight with them.
The war between species is about to begin.
Can magic overcome the advanced technology of an expansionist empire?
And can the woman who died sacrificing her life for Thomas really be reborn?
