I thought a query was bad... I have decided the a synopsis is much worse. I am actually terrified putting this in here and feel like it may be better of deleting and starting fresh, but before I do that I will offer it up to the god's of feedback. Enjoy and feel free to rip it to shreds!
The Kingdom of Meerovia is thrust into chaos after the king’s death and the prince’s assassination on his coronation day. With the lineage of kings broken for the first time in the kingdom’s history, the throne lies ripe for the taking.
ADIRA, an eighteen-year-old peasant girl, travels with her adoptive father to the city of Meerovia to witness the king’s funeral and the prince’s crowning. Instead, they and the surrounding crowd of spectators witness two funerals along with the execution of the prince’s supposed assassin’s, his own personal guards.
Adira’s world is turned on its side when she finds a dying soldier in the forest. The soldier, hunted by dark sentries sent by the demon overlord, BEDROG, reveals that Bedrog’s general assassinated the prince. After the soldier dies, Adira takes his sword and flees, barely escaping the dark sentries. Adira’s father later helps her reforge the sword into a weapon more fitting for her and infuses a mysterious, white material into the steel to make the blade more powerful than before.
When a noble from the nearby village learns of Adira’s encounter with the soldier, he visits her home while she is away, torturing and killing her father. Fearing for her own life, Adira flees into the forest, leaving behind her home and vowing revenge on the man responsible for her father’s death.
Adira wanders across the land, towards the edge of the kingdom, and into the hands of an exiled general in command of an outpost where she learns to fight and defend herself. After a short time at the outpost a mysterious rider arrives, pursued by the same dark sentries Adira faced in the forest. The rider reveals herself to be THE SEER, an ageless and powerful mystic believed to have helped form the kingdom ages ago.
Using her magic, the Seer destroys the sentries and requests that Adira return to the capital city with her. There, the Seer shows Adira the true heart of the kingdom. A tiny, blue flame that once roared with life, now slowly fading out as darkness reemerges across the land. Adira passes her hand over the flame and is filled a mystical power, granting her the strength to protect the kingdom and the flame from Bedrog.
When the queen proclaims herself the new ruler of the kingdom she orders the executions of Adira and the Seer. They manage to escape and flee into a dark and dangerous series of passageways that lead them out of the kingdom and into the desert to the south. Here, the Dark Army has already ravaged the land and is preparing to attack the kingdom, allowing Bedrog to take the throne.
In the desert, they meet the remnants of the Gawan, a tribal kingdom considered to be barbarians by the Meerovian’s. Adira and the Seer form a bond with the Gawan elder and his grandson and lead the people across the desert and back to the outpost where they form a small army and prepare to take back the kingdom.
The army is put to the test at the Black Castle, Bedrog’s lair in the marshes beyond the kingdom’s borders. While the armies battle, Adira and four warriors sneak into the castle in an attempt to kill Bedrog, but find that he is not there. He has already led his vast army into the capital of Meerovia and killed the queen, declaring himself the new king and ruler of the land. His general waits for Adira and her friends inside the castle, accompanied by four dark sentries. After a short fight Adira is able to defeat the general and destroy the black magic protecting the army outside of the castle, allowing them to claim a small victory.
When Adira and the small army arrive back at the outpost, they realize that they now have a nearly impossible task of piecing together another army and marching across the kingdom to take back what they have lost. Unexpected help arrives when a large force of Gawan fighters arrive, prepared to join the army and wielding weapons made from the same white steel in Adira’s sword, capable of penetrating the armor of the dark warriors, protected by Bedrog’s magic.
Marching across the countryside and slowly taking back the cities destroyed by Bedrog’s army, Adira and her friends begin to realize that victory may be within their grasp. The discovery of an ancient and mysterious entity, far older than the kingdom and Bedrog, offers itself to Adira, promising her the ability to destroy Bedrog forever. Adira accepts, and the entity enters her body, filling her with unimaginable strength and the power to destroy entire armies on her own.
As Adira and her friends come closer to destroying Bedrog, their friendship is put to the test. Adira becomes increasingly distant and seems unable to control the entity inside of her. When they finally confront Bedrog in the palace, the entity easily destroys the demon overlord. Their victory is bittersweet when the entity decides to remain inside of Adira, ordering her friends to never seek her out or they will be destroyed as well. She leaves them standing in the burned and wrecked remains of their kingdom, victorious, but feeling more defeated than ever.
