War is a device of boundless horror. It has turned Ranku from a sweet boy, to a man of intemperate disposition, capable of bitter violence.
The conflict between the Royal Army of Phobex and the minions of Lasgorth Nomany left all of the land a desolate wasteland. Ten years on, and still, there is no-one in power. The country is lawless. There are no longer any rules. It is a time when the strong survive, while the weak suffer at the hands of the ruthless.
Ranku Galloway, a young man who has lived through three years of war, is travelling the wasteland with his comrade, Zabu, an aging veteran who is in search of the family he left behind. Armed with swords and stout hearts, they encounter two women in peril.
As he unwittingly becomes the sole protector of the land's last, best hope for peace, Ranku must not only protect the women from the demented forces which seek to slaughter them, but also from an implacable enemy of his past.
But this is only the beginning of a plot, conceived by three cunning demons, which will see the entire world left in ruins.
