In 1899, the North American Confederacy and its allies have begun to abandon that century’s War To End All Wars in Europe. The Estate, a small, neutral nation, is surrounded by the conflict with no clear successor to the country’s aging sovereign. Mark, the Duke’s illegitimate son, is caught in the strains of this second, more personal conflict that threatens its own turbulent conclusion.
