With the death of his adoptive daughter, Galina, Yoshiro is greatly shaken up. Though he thinks that he will recover as he always has, he soon finds out that this isn't the case. Having been holding back what he felt after the deaths of people he cared about, people that served under him, and of the people he killed in battle for the last several centuries... the gates are thrown wide open and Yoshiro is driven into a deep depression. While this is going on, he's trying to prove that a sentient AI can be safely created. With the AI as his companion, he leaves to go find answers to questions he hasn't quite figured out. Will Yoshiro find what he seeks, or will he fall even deeper into depression. Find out in the Eighth Book of the Chronicles of Verbana series!
