Aszyria, Atlantia, Avalona, and Aragona. These four nations are the only safe places for humans in the Beast-infested world of Raetrethra. The year is 4547 and for now, there is peace; upheld by an intergovernmental organization called the Guardians. However, all of that is soon about to change. Follow the epic journey of eight aspiring Guardians, whose actions will determine the fate of the world. It is a tale of friendship, justice, honor, heroism, and tragedy.

In the first book, the main protagonists: Norah, Dezmond, Jemma, Nemo, Roland, Aria, Elfred and Irene, find themselves teamed in their quest to join the Guardian ranks; despite their differences in culture and motivations for enlisting. Follow this tale of heartwarming friendships and friendly rivalries between the eight, as they learn what it means to be a Guardian while honing their respective abilities and talents. However, their bonds and skills will be put to the test when mixed loyalties lead to conflicts of interests, and more than one of them will have to make severe choices that could risk shattering the team, along with their lives.
