After a year without heroes, the world is in shambles. Enter Evelyn Town—a new Champion appointed by a mysterious power called the Word to seek vengeance for those unsettled souls murdered on the altar of cannibalism.
Ultimate power corrupts, and Evelyn has learned a lot about the spear that gives her strength—will the siren of power seduce her? Will it corrupt another Champion, who is obsessed with Gil and his music, or will it bring harmony and balance to a world thrown in chaos?
Is this power enough to bring Evelyn and Gil together or will it tear them—and the world—apart?
