For over ten thousand years, the Lyarran Empire kept the peace in the galaxy. It stood as civilizations rose and fell, gained strength from new species joining the fold, and even bore witness to the rise of Aen. The long fabled Harbinger took his place in the history books as he successfully stopped the Guild -once founding members of the Empire – from usurping the throne for themselves.
But now as the dust settles from the failed revolution, the winds of change push back the veil of shadow to reveal the driving force behind it all. Am-Na’Ka-ur has unleashed his legions of Husk and Valkyrie upon the entire galaxy to reshape all that he believes should never have been; the once Blue King of Dalanth is filled with vengeance from his betrayal.
With an enemy of unheralded power, Aen leads the charge to pit the Ifierin and the Fleet against this growing darkness in the face of overwhelming odds. The war has begun; Aen, the Lyarran Empire, and the entire galaxy will never be the same again.
