The world ends in eighteen days, but the Remnant finally has a chance at escape.
The Champion of the legendary Knights Reborn has returned to help the Remnant in their hour of need. While she infiltrates the Imaia to steal a spaceship as their means of fleeing their dying world, her daughter Estingai searches for other surviving Knights to recruit.
With a small team of his own, Koruuksi searches for allies and a hidden secret that will guide the Remnant to a new home once they escape Efruumani. He expects refugees cowering from the Imaia, but when he finds a hidden civilization, Koruuksi realizes he is in over his head.
Now Koruuksi must convince an entire people that their utopia is in danger, and uncover the secret that has kept their home vibrant and hidden while the rest of the world dies.
The Throne is broken.
The gods have abandoned them.
This is their last hope.
