A master duelist and battle strategist by the age of 8, Malika was a child prodigy born to rule. However, she quickly realizes just how heavy the crown is after ascending to the throne following the loss of both parents during the civil war. Determined to make a better future for Azzaz, Malika ends the civil war by uniting all the neighboring kingdoms into one empire. This attracts danger from the outside in the form of the Ming Dynasty, as well as betrayal from within the walls of her empire. These, however, turn out to be the least of Malika’s problems as a cloud darkness approaches Azzaz. Malika must now look to divine power to restore hope to a fractured empire.
