For Henry, it's about avoiding a repeat of the desperate struggles he faced as a child. For Mary, it's about escaping the monotony of her work serving one of the wealthiest men in Amestraton. For both of them, the goal is simple enough: to build a better life together. But the conflicting politics of the city - and the arrival of a living legend - put everything they have worked for at risk.
For Henry, it's about avoiding a repeat of the desperate struggles he faced as a child. He does not want the mistakes of the past repeated, and his work as a mercenary is a means to this end, for the one thing he desires above all else.
For Mary, it's about escaping the monotony of her work serving one of the wealthiest men in Amestraton. Regardless of what may come, she is determined to move away from the only life she has known, and onto the path that she has chosen.
For both of them, the goal is simple enough: to build a better life together. However, the conflicting politics of the city - and the sudden arrival of a living legend - put everything they have worked for at risk. Regardless of outcome, the decisions they must make could very well change the future of the city they call home...

This is one of the most boring stories I have ever read. I think many details could have been omitted. The characters are not fully developed and come across as quite stupid, for want of a better word. I read it through hoping it would finally develop into an exciting, entertaining story, but was sorely disappointed. Needs to be reworked.
