Since he was fifteen years old, Delias has been fighting on the border against the Averati. Bathed in blood, he rose in the ranks. In his youth, he fell in love; in his arrogance, he led. But that drove him to his downfall.
Now, after fourteen years of living in a shelter for crippled veterans, Delias is given a new chance at life, a new body. One that brought him to a side of the world where monsters and Averati reign supreme. But what happens when he finds his new body has a 10-year expiration date? What happens when the other side realizes a human walks among them?
Now, Delias does everything to save himself. This is a story, of a man as abase and corrupt as any other, who tries to go home only to be dragged into political schemes of a country on the brink of civil war.
