Jason's world is turned upside down by war and family conflict. His family no longer stands as the ruling family, but it still stands for something for its long and ancient lineage. Appointed the General, his fate of protecting and serving his country has come to be a reality. It is now or never for him. But what's more, there are others who join in the conflict. Old friends return into his life, dead family members return and new family members enter his life. But, should the conflicts be too much, if his efforts go to waste, Medelthia will fall to the army of the Jaycaten. It will take all of his skill, all of his learning, and every inch of his power to stop the Jaycaten from enslaving the people of Medelthia, and with his friends he might just make it.
