The world has gone into ruin. The Beacon, the crown city of the Prime Realm is in absolute darkness. Monsters known only as Abominations prowl the land and patrol the skies. In the 100 Realms, the
armies of the Darkness have prevailed. Leon Max thinks it's hopeless. Nevertheless, he fights with the Lighthouse, the final resistance against the Darkness. As his squad is tasked with escorting a
VIP to the Beacon in the attempts to light it, things quickly go south. War on a scale far larger than anyone has seen for two centuries looms on the horizon. Leon quickly realises that this VIP is
far more than he seems and if he and his squad--if the Resistance--is to survive, they must get him to the Beacon, at all costs.
