Imprisoned for a crime he did not commit Lieut faces the executioners axe. But that is the least of his problems. In fact death would be an acceptable release from his mental anguish. Forced to kill his own brother after Ne’tra named him a traitor Lieut is left wondering what the point of his life even is. Grand Magi Fenard Cardonian is dead, slain by Lieut’s brother. But this was no meagre assassination and the King of Krnōrel has been linked to the murder. Needless to say the Grand Magi’s father, and ruler of Sesserrech, is livid and already sets his thoughts upon revenge. Desperate to stop this brewing war that could tear the realms apart, Vythe pleads to Lieut for help in understanding why Ne’tra had killed the Grand Magi. However, Lieut never knew many details outside of his own mission and can only offer vague plots to assassinate the princess of Krnōrel to ensure the bloody war. Vythe sets out immediately for Krenorl and with Fairris and Bārdin beside him they decide to venture on a straight course through the deserts of the Crimson Wasteland, Fairris’s homeland. Old grudges, past demons and new threats come out to play in this next instalment in the series Chaos of Choice.
