The Disian Curtain is approaching. Kyu Ardrassis knows he must stop it, but to do that, he must first hone his new-found skills. His aunt is the only one who can teach him, but she is dead, so he must return in time to her realm… and to that of his father. Harra Ardrassis, however, never knew he had a son, and is in the final stages of a fifteen-year-long battle to reunite all the territories of their world. Kyu also knows that he will be abandoning the one reasonable remaining regent, Erenia Sanna, at a time when she will need him most – she has been tasked with stopping the outbreak of yet another war among the territories, a war fueled by an Oracle armed with an army of children and hordes of deadly spiders. This Oracle, aided by the Infernal Asrath, is helping to move the Disian Curtain forward, but is also harboring a lethal lust for revenge against Regent Sanna, and has given birth to the Apollyon. Kyu must tap his father’s wisdom in battle and his aunt’s esoteric skills in order to ultimately destroy Asrath, his own mother, and her spawn. Dis is coming; only Kyu can stop it.

The Territories have been unified for a thousand years, brought together under the sword of Harra Ardrassis and the sorcerous power of his immortal sister, Haena. But the Unification has always been contentious; hostility and distrust grows stronger every year. Surrounding the Territories is the Disian Curtain, a desolate darkness filled with ravenous, twisted horrors beyond imagination. Ruled by Infernals called the Diaboli Domini, these terrors desire nothing more than to devour the flesh and souls of all humanity… And the Disian Curtain is encroaching ever closer.

From the Territory of Talgourge comes Kyu, The Unknown, a man whose past, and face, are a complete mystery, even to him. A rising celebrity in the popular and lethal sport of arena fighting, Kyu’s lack of identity drives him to question everything, including the profession at which he excels. When he finally discovers who and what he really is, and meets a young woman who gives his empty life meaning, Kyu wants to walk away from the violence and live on his own term, but powers, both human and Infernal, have plans of their own for him. With the Territories teetering on the brink of continent-wide warfare and Dis’ unspeakable nightmares approaching, they will do anything to control Kyu and the nascent power he is just beginning to realize. Kyu, however, is much more powerful than anyone knows. He will do anything to protect… and avenge… those he loves, and his world will never be the same.
