It is said that on every world there exists one great story, a legend of such magnitude and consequence that it serves to shape the very existence of that planet. This is such a story.
It came to pass upon the world of Brethwyn that the flames of the Uhbliid, the Great Fire, died, leaving behind it a vast, charred wasteland. Few survived. From the ashes of what came before, seven nations emerged to rule. However, obsessed with worldly pursuits, they were oblivious to the ominous threat building upon the face of their closest moon.
For, there, beneath that haunted satellite's cold and pitiless surface, an army bent on annihilation was being spawned. Its masters eyed the nearby world menacingly and planned for war; a war fought not for an ideal or revenge, but for a purpose far more sinister.
And into the midst of these events stumbles young Aldor es Gilfillan; an escaped slave blessed with the strange gift of warding sight. Seeking only liberty, he finds himself drawn into a quest for hope, carrying an unborne saviour to a mysterious alien nation in a distant country; a journey that, if successful, will see an ancient prophecy fulfilled and Brethwyn saved.
