Dione Eferhild and Raziel Ahriman come from two different worlds. Her kind stormed into the Ordos Kingdom and wreaked havoc on the desert land. His had fought bravely but futilely under the rule of a cowardly king.
When the two meet in the aftermath of the Sahraoui War, they are drawn together. But underneath all the glitter and gold, trouble brews. Vigilantes led by a man called Janus have overrun the Angati Empire. Nobles are being slaughtered. Commoners are growing restless. And Raziel Ahriman, the bastard prince of a vassal kingdom, harbors secrets that may just become their ruin.
Despite the doubts that plague her, Dione is forced to choose a side when Angati is thrown into chaos. Only one thing is for sure: nothing is as it seems.
