Still coping with the death of her parents and the guilt she feels toward failing them,
Dori meets a mysterious young man who offers a way for her to achieve what she most desires.
For her own reasons, Dori follows Lloyd back to his world. There, she
discovers that her grand dream of destiny is nothing more than an
illusion. The reality she faces is a broken, war-torn world.
The chaos of the collapse of an empire and a war spanning two
generations is matched only by the rise to power of Glennick Goodwin,
the benevolent dictator and scientist behind the new "utopian" world
Dori falls in with a group of rebels who each follow Lloyd for their
own motivations. At first, Dori sees a simple solution, Lloyd's; destroy
Glennick and set the "oppressed" free. But as Dori learns more about
her companions, the circumstances and, especially, Mr. Goodwin, she
starts to doubt the side she has chosen.
If she is to find the sense of purpose she came for, she must become
as powerful a force as the two dangerous men she is caught between.
