With these three
virtues, we shall rise. With these three, we shall conquer.
To my people,
the sky-reigning Empyreans, Intention Day is sacred…
To me, it’s the
day my carefully crafted lie crumbles and my truth gives way to my ruin. The
intense power surging through my veins is revealed, immediately coveted by
those eager to exploit me for what they deem a greater good. If they have their
way, the future I long for will be ripped away. But I am a warrior born to fly.
To fight. Not to be caged and controlled.
The great scale
of the goddess Neera has tipped out of my favor. The pans teeter between
weighty punishment and deadly opportunity. My choices? Capture my most
formidable enemy before next Intention Day, or forfeit my wings.
But life’s loftiest
plans are often a breath away from disaster, and tragedy strikes as
unpredictably as a bolt of lightning. When I find myself at the mercy of my
greatest enemy, the terror known as the Shark of the Sea, the monster who
killed the person I loved most, I accept my fate. My death. But the Shark does

soaked with the blood of sky and sea. The longer I am among his kind, the more
I wonder if he might be right. Could an alliance be the salvation of both our
I am Elira, great Scourge of the Sky.
He is Crest, cunning Shark of the Sea.
Together… we could be unstoppable.
