If only they knew us as more than accursed. The Holy Empire hates the People of Light. Maripes, arriving in its capital, seeks to save his people from certain destruction. The Inquisition seeks theocratic justice, and it will stop at nothing to rid the world of those it considers evil. Still, Maripes must try. For, if he fails, doom will certainly befall his people. Standing in his way? The high inquisitor, the empress, and a million subjects all indoctrinated to believe he is evil incarnate. Should be an easy task. Otherwise, his son Mono, a soldier in the legions of their people, will face the fight of his life. In the end, will Mono's daughter be forced to pick up the pieces of a broken world?
