As the gods battle in the heavens, darkness descends on earth.
The Keepers of Nine guide the primordial Kurintor warriors protecting the mortal world from the demons of Ashemohn. But after a god’s corruption empowered their demon goddess, Sokka, her manipulations have brought the Kurintor to the brink of extinction.
Can the Keepers of Nine awaken the Kurintor descendants in time to defend the Fifth Kingdom, or will the eidolons Sokka has sent forth destroy them?
It isn’t prophecy, destiny, or a birthright, that will decide the fate of the mortal world. It is choice.
