Adar Rahid has only been a general for two months, but his problems are already multiplying. He has his hands full with a father who wants to kill him and Helam Morgal, another general who is secretly laying plans to take over the Rarbon city government.
When Adar encounters a gang of bandits brazenly robbing and murdering merchants in his territory he suspects that there is more going on than just a simple robbery. His fears are quickly confirmed when a murder perpetrated by a hidden organization known as the Kopal pulls him into a conflict with Helam where the future of the city is at stake.
While events unfold Adar Rahid struggles to find a distinction between his methods and those employed by Helam Morgal as both take drastic actions to gain the upperhand.
