In an ancient future ruled by a warrior race of winged humans, a young king confronts the corruption terrorizing his people, and sets his kingdom on a path toward civil war. More
Four hundred years in the future, a warrior race of winged humans called pterren have taken over the earth. Originally created by the United States military, the pterren have never considered themselves human. They are violent and brutal, worship an almighty deity that sanctifies genocide, and their kingdoms are ruled with corruption and terror. When a young pterren prince named Terrence Davin is crowned the High King of Mirador, his heretical views drive a wedge between the most powerful members of his court. Amidst the fractures and bloodshed of intrigue and rebellion, lies and betrayal, the structure of pterren society is about to be shaken, as Terrence confronts the corruption terrorizing his people, and sets the Kingdom of Mirador on a path toward civil war.
