The Empire is crumbling; sedition and rebellion have seen entire provinces freed from Tornmilian control. At the heart of the Empire, the city of Tornmile itself, an ailing king sits on the throne, unable to rule, and power-hungry nobles fight over control of the regency. While they fight, the colonies burn and it can’t be long before Tornmile too starts to feel the heat.

For the meantime, Johreel, Brielle, and Mishak have other concerns, but there’s something darker in Tornmile’s heart than a dying empire; an intricate web that will enmesh them all.
