EVERY LEGEND BEGINS WITH THE TRUTH.
Lead Guard Fianna Vellmar is the daughter of a champion, trained to handle blades since she was old enough to grip a knife. Her sword skills have caught the eye of Lancer Tal herself, earning a promotion to the most elite warrior unit on Alsea.
With one dream already achieved, Vellmar sets her sights on another: the Global Games. In the annual competition of the world's best athletes, she aims to prove herself the finest blade handler of all — until a stunning turn of events forces her to choose between life and glory, mercy and pride.
Vellmar became a legend not for winning a championship, but for losing it.
