For as long as she could remember, Liruliniel had one goal, one hope, one thing she wanted to aspire to be and do: she wanted to be a royal guard, like her father. Only, to get to that, a few trials and problems lay in her path. War, battles so terrible that the loses don't outweigh the success of wining. Love, failing and being to one side powerless in the turmoil of emotions. Friendship, some long standing, some new; but all of these things circle and involve each other, something terrible is coming, a rise of a dark power and the losing of control of everything.
