Chosen by the gods, Astra and Lumi were born for a great destiny… If they have the courage to accept it.
In the kingdom of Drasilgard, the ancient and brutal ritual of open succession has kept the peace for many generations… until now. Three heirs, one crown and only the strongest may ascend the throne. Dark whispers of prince Lutin’s disappearance and princess Astra’s assassination reach the Temple that is both Lumi’s prison and home. Seizing the opportunity, prince Sorin declares himself High King but Lumi dreams that Astra lives. The dreams of this seer child give the people hope and fuel rebellion. Lumi’s dreams of Astra are the only thing standing between Sorin and the crown he longs for. She must be silenced.
The crown, however, is not the only thing at stake. For years the High Kings and Queens of Drasilgard have broken the ancient promises made to the gods weakening the only gateway to the realm of the divine, the Eternal Tree. Without it, divine presence in the mortal world will disappear leaving only darkness and chaos. With the night of the blood moon rapidly approaching and the Eternal Tree growing weaker, Lumi and Astra must fight to survive and protect the future of their land. In the darkest hours, their strength of spirit will determine the fate of all Drasilgard.
