Kyri: a highborn young woman whose life is shattered by the murder of her kin. But, even as she flees her beloved land Evanwyl, Kyri knows she's her family's only hope for justice, and Evanwyl's only chance to escape a growing shadow of corruption and destruction. Now, Kyri must venture across Zarathan, a world on the brink of a long-foretold Chaos War. It is a struggle that will rend the foundations of existence and may usher in a long age of darkness - that is, if Kyri and her companions do not succeed in holding back the tide of evil that is rising!
