Action & Adventure

Denland and Lascanne have been allies for generations, but now the Denlanders have slayed their emperor, conquered the kingdom and marched on their northern neighbour. At the border, the war goes worse between the Lascanne's courageous redcoats and the anarchists of Denland. Emily Marshwic has lost her brother-in-law and young brother to war. The war takes a worse turn and demands more soldiers from a land already drained of husbands, fathers and sons. Every household is compelled to send one woman to fight in the war. Emily now has no choice but to join the army of young women marching to the front. As the war aggravates, Emily begins to doubt the Lascanne's cause. She soon finds herself in a fix; her choices can make or break both her future and that of her nation.
