War rages across Denestia and Hydae. A war to end all wars. A war to end both worlds.
Haunted by his mother’s death, Ancel Dorn tries to flee from his newfound power for fear he may yet be the demise of all he loves. Irmina Nagel is on the hunt for those who murdered her parents while investigating the spread of corrupted magic. Ryne Waldron seeks redemption for his past atrocities, for bringing the world to the cusp of an apocalypse.
Even as these three fight their inner battles, imprisoned gods threaten to cross the breach. Under the rule of the Nine, the Tribunal’s armies march on the Vallum of Light, intent on destroying the Bastions to give the gods passage. Daemonic armies ravage entire cities to feed said gods, while transforming the populace into ravenous shadelings and wraiths.
Hope of survival lives within Ancel and his siblings. But can they walk the knife’s edge of harmony? The precipice between light and darkness? Between courage and fear? Life, itself, hangs in the balance.
But as always in Denestia, something waits that none of them anticipated.
