AXIO, humanity's last bastion against evil, is in a civil war following a military coup. Theodin Vanixi, the Regent-Lord, lies dead at the hand of assassins. The Vanixian Republic has all but collapsed, its surviving members retreating into the untamed wilds.
Amid these calamitous events, Airis Vanixi, a righteous Paladin, struggles with her position as the commander of an all but annihilated empire. In the far reaches of a devestated land she unites the broken survivors and charges them with a seemingly insurmountable task: take the fight to horrific nightmarish monsters occupying a former fortress-city and secure a foothold in this desolate world.
Among the champions are Julius, Adaemus, a battle-hardened Guardian; Hailey Brooks, a powerful spellcaster; Luke Mitchell, a deadly Rogue; Mei Devins, a sharp-eyed Ranger; Alistaire Alcotts and Soren Jameson, skilled warriors and an inseparable duo.
Are they fated to rise from the ashes and retake their homeland?
