Khandarken is one of the countries that has been precariously created from the chaos when The Last War finally ended and Emperor Aqatain was defeated. It has an ally to the south, but north is Legitamia with its own dictator and over the mountains to the east lies Jiran – a territory that is no one’s friend.
As new countries arise from the ashes of the old Empire, the citizens swear they will never need to fight again after that long and painful war.
Bethlehem Farmer is helping her brother Abram run Farmer Holdings in south Khandarken after their father died in the final battles. She looks after the dispossessed, keeping the farm productive and the talc mine working in the hills behind their land. But when Abram takes a trip with Uncle Jade into the northern territory and disappears without a trace, she’s left on her own. Suddenly things are not what they seem and no one can be trusted.
Major Dante Regiment is sent by his father, the General of Khandarken, to find out what the situation is at Farmer Holdings. What he sees shakes him to the core and fuels his grim determination to protect Bethlehem at all cost, even with his life.
“Major Dante Regiment must find a way to protect Beth, as the Emperor is not the only one causing chaos in Khandarken”
