The two societies revolve around their armies, both knowing the other race was the cause of the centuries long war. When circumstances bring Brianne and Talon together, they begin to learn that not everything is what it seems and the real truth may lie beyond the Feronian Mountains, which none of their people have crossed in centuries.
