In the distant future, a new form of an old, deadly religion ravages mankind. Its followers, the Men of Adam, have recruited an ancient race to purify the universe of the plague of the unclean, the nonbelievers, once and for all. The future of freethinkers everywhere rests on the shoulders of the young queen, Arial, who must find the strength to realize her potential. If she fails, the annihilation of the Worlds is a certainty.
She must rise above a swirling maelstrom of betrayal, sacrifice, and intrigue to save her people. Before the war draws to its bloody end, armies will be destroyed, mages will test the very limits of the physical realm, daemons will walk among the living, Elvin clans will cleave through shadow, and the blood angels will rain down terror.
Is the courage of one young woman enough to save the Worlds?
