The end is near.
Everything Alaina and the Kardia warriors have fought for is crumbling around them. Nysa has fallen into disarray under the rule of Lord Wright. Brady has been captured by the assassin, Kakos. They are no closer now to defeating either one than they were a year ago.
The brutal attack on Hagion has left Alaina without an army. Those who have stood against Wright and Kakos have been slaughtered, leaving few who are willing to fight.
But even as all hope for a peaceful future fades, Alaina's faith grows. She is more determined now than ever to fulfill the prophecy bestowed upon her by the Gods and put an end to war plaguing her people.
Even if it means sacrificing her life to do so.
