Enter into a world of hidden cities, airships, monstrous creatures, and love. Can Lily save a world of people whom she’s never known to exist? Her life and her home has all been a lie, but one thing has always remained constant—her partner, her friend, her love, Xander. Together, with old and new allies, they must face an evil that has plagued the earth and use their skills honed in the Barrage to battle the foretold destiny of the destroyer of humanity—Lily herself. Everyone has an inner demon. Lily’s, however, could be the end for all. And like many who can choose between good or evil, Lily has two choices: become The Ardent, the world’s greatest hope, or follow a different, much darker path. A path of an unspoken name whispered in the shielded minds of druids and Ardents of ancient past. A path that will save the earth, but ultimately destroy humanity. A path of Gaia-riftre—the Earth Reaper. When faced with hopeless odds, what side will she choose?
