After twenty years of war, the Hunwei left suddenly. Many called it a victory, few believed that they would return.
When the war between the Hunwei and the humans ceased without warning, not many people had survived. Those survivors lost much of the technology that had been commonplace in their society, sending them back to the dark ages. More than a thousand years later, when most thought the Hunwei to be a myth, Adar believed that the Hunwei would return and resume the fight. Adar and his reluctant son Jorad continued to search for a way to defend their people. This time, without that technology, there will be nothing standing between them and the entire capture or destruction of the human race.
