Reeling from the betrayal, Anita is captured trying to escape and tortured to breaking point. Returning home on the wings of an unstoppable machine known as ‘the dragon’, she is cast out and forced to side with Soldiers of the Lost, the most radical faction.

A century ago, an apocalypse of magic tore all but one of the world’s artificial suns from its skies. The feudal Phoenix Kingdom which rose from the ashes has yet to solve the mystery of the cataclysm’s origin, or determine why the undying ancients disappeared so completely.
