A fantasy world without the fantasy, Midera is an unforgiving realm of stone and steel, bereft of the tired tropes of magic and mythical creatures. In a time when the gods have abandoned man, the greedy and cruel reign, free to prey at will upon those of good heart.
Against the backdrop of a tenuous peace, Sean Oakly rails against the meagre existence preordained for him. With best friend at his side, he enlists in the military and embarks upon an uncertain adventure far from home. Yet even his wide eyes cannot glimpse the troubling portents that will drag him and his country inexorably towards war.
And what of the Lady Luvier, and enigmatic warrioress who is thrust into the role of leading Sean and his fellow soldiers? Can she see them safely through, even as her own motivations, and very identity, remain shrouded in mystery?
