Magic is in short supply and the inhabitants of Asmondrya are facing annihilation by an evil returned from oblivion. A fairy and a dragon join forces to battle the relentless scourge of demonic beasts, but saving the world will require a greater sacrifice than the life of one hero and one heroine. Their stage was set in the distant past, a prophetic vision defining their roles, but can they play their parts as they choose, or must the ancient writings dictate their every move?
Trapped in an ancient fortress, Gil is the last hold-out against militarized radical fanatics. The protective equipment keeping him alive is failing faster than he can repair it. His only hope lies with Alesia discovering technology that will allow him to cross over to her side.
On Alesia's Earth, the time of the human race is winding down. A biological weapon unleashed in a long-forgotten war, has doomed them to reach zero population growth. The wealth of knowledge accumulated over the millennia has been lost, and the remaining people exist as their medieval ancestors once did. For any hope of saving Gil, herself, and her people, she must unlock the secret of the forbidden fortress before Gil's adversaries overrun his defenses.
Winning her heart should be his toughest challenge, but keeping her proves more difficult than he could have imagined. Summer's brothers pour on ever increasing pressure to tear the young couple apart, and push Hollis to his limit with their dirty tricks and lies.
