Alric's Kingdom comes under attack from a surprise source and he has to take drastic measures to keep his people and his family safe. Kyrin talks him into a quest and finds a new side of the Valharan King.
When the Consortiums begin to show up in Paragoy, decisions have to be made on how to protect the entire dimension. Kyrin fights the decision that Sithias and Erianah make and Alric has limited time to change her mind.
Kyrin tries to fit into Paragoy once she's no longer able to shift through the dimensions. Alric struggles to help her, but she keeps more of her evil tendencies to herself. Sithias begins his bid to get Kyrin to join him, as the trolls come forward as a new enemy.
Sithias finally offers the twins a place as his followers, and Kyrin fights against it. The deity sends someone to help her that ends up being more of a nuisance. The elves join the humans in Valhara and Kyrin immediately clashes with them.
Kyrin's loyalty to Sithias is challenged when Erianah makes a bid to rid the dimension of the Valharan King and his noble family. Kyrin's drive to create a portal potion backfires, and Sithias' patience with her is thinly stretched.
When the plague and drought intensify, Kyrin faces new dangers. The gods of the dimensions target her and try to re-create the magic filled worlds that they have destroyed.
Alric's faith is pushed to the limits as his patience is tested by the Qualsax and by things out of his control. He struggles to keep his family safe when the entire dimension seems to turn on them.
