They used something greater, and they exclaimed, "Let us control the stars!" And they became so great that they created life itself.

The Gods above have conferred upon the Dominion an extraordinary power: the Source. Yet only few are able to harness its energy. A society divided since the Dread Days clings to a relative stability that the Council of Five has been tasked to safeguard.

But now, the balance of power is threatened once more. Puzzling attacks leave villages destroyed, and two Council members are brutally assassinated. The Dominion struggles to avoid the violence, war, and terror it faced in prior centuries.

While following an eclectic cast of individuals, amid complex plots and counterplots, enter a medieval futuristic world, where the innocent and the corrupt, the wise and the ignorant, the strong and the weak, are challenged by myths and secrets of their past.
