Novel SummaryIn order to maintain a collapsing empire, a war erupts, causing nations to both emerge and shatter under the sudden violent strain. Pressured, these medieval factions fuel the fires with politics, resources, and faith, causing fractures that pull the outer lands into one major conflict, all figures seeking their own intents. Brought into the conflict include warriors risen from raised villages, martyrs from collapsing beliefs, mercenaries from hopeless fragments, and templar from decimated families. They battle for what they find true in the world, but through suffering, hope, visions, and sacrifice, these leading figures' ways of life are challenged and force them to question the very foundation of their lives. The weight of the world leaves them straining to hold it up, and must make action before everyone and everything collapses.
