Fallon Swift has spent all her life preparing for this moment. No longer can she stand by whilst her fellow Magicks are hunted by the fanatical Purity Warriors or rounded up and experimented on by the government.
Fallon must follow her destiny to restore the magical shield that once protected them all. The final battle has begun…
Twenty years ago when a deadly pandemic was unleashed upon the world, destroying civilisation, a child was conceived. She, who would come to be known as The One, was destined to fulfil a prophecy and lead the light against the dark.
On the shield, one of seven forged in the timeless past to hold back the dark, fell a single drop of blood.
So the shield weakened, and the dark, spider-patient, waited as the decades passed, and the wound spread under grass and ground.
And on the last day of what had been, a good man, in all innocence, broke the shield open. The dark rewarded him with a deadly infection, one that would pass from man to wife, from parent to child, from stranger to stranger.
Fallon Swift’s life had been spent preparing for what she knew was to come. During the years since The Doom decimated the Earth and magic, both good and evil, was unleashed, the dark uncannys had preyed upon those of the light. As Fallon grew so did her knowledge and power. Her training and skills have stood her in good stead, the resistance forces multiplying and continuing to storm the places where the dark reigns. Cities and towns are won and many of those experimented on by the government or persecuted by the bands of Purity Warriors and Dark Uncanny are rescued from containment, swelling the ranks with those who pledge to fight. The team leaders are more than capable but even so the skirmishes aren’t without deaths and injuries. One in particular that surprised and saddened. The final battle is imminent and the fate of mankind rests in the balance.
Timing, she thought as she spoke to the elf commander Flynn, to Tonia in her mind. They would breach the three doors simultaneously, and each team leader would focus their troops on priorities. Destroy communications, eliminate security, take the armory, secure the lab. Above all, shield all prisoners.
