For a thousand millenia, the people of the Vyr have enjoyed the only verdant lands on an otherwise barren world. But now they are caught in an ever-tightening noose between the barbaric Uemn from the eastern deserts and the mysterious Kaanite tribes of the western mountains.

As the power of the Vyr Lords diminishes, the people begin to turn toward the legend of the Shad'ya - a shadow warrior from the far past, born of both fire and ice. Their hope is born both of desperation and of despair.

Into this harsh world, a female child is born to the bloodline of the last of the Vyr Lords. She is the final heir to Thorsen's Law - the strict code that has kept the world from falling into darkness. But that same law now demands her death.

She is treated as an outcast. She is seen as an abomination. But she is trained as a warrior.

She is Elysen.

She will either save the world, or destroy it.
