Yared has traveled a long way to find his place in the universe. Light years, even. Though the battle of Addis Prime is over, tensions between the technologically advanced Axum Empire and the duplicitous Werari continue to boil.
Yared finds himself at the center of the conflict when he's brought to the Royal Trials, an intergalactic competition that also happens to be the site of an important hearing on the Weraris' crimes. As a superstar player in his own right, Yared can't help but want to compete.
His wish is granted in the worst possible way when Yared is kidnapped and forced into an exo-suit, then ordered to fight through the Trials without revealing himself. If he does, it's game over.
Now Yared must discover who's kidnapped him and why, all while facing the fiercest opponents of all — his own allies.
