A North American, post apocalyptic epic fantasy... It is 1,692 years after the "Great Death" nearly wiped humanity from the face of the Earth, and a new civilization has risen from the ashes.

The epic saga has some of the classic tropes of high fantasy that fans of Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time or The First Law series will recognize, but twists them in a pleasing and unique direction. The world is recognizably North American, as certain aspects of our modern culture have survived through the apocalypse but evolved into something new.
