Valkyrie Siskonen evaded death twice, and she knows she won’t survive another encounter with the Third Sister…
…Sion Zona has no idea Valkyrie’s life is so close to the end, and she intends to keep it that way
Valkyrie knows Sion will have no problem deviating from his calling if it means saving her. Even if he is the greatest hope the World of Eidolon has against an enemy larger than either the Tamurian Empire or King Magnu.
Fortunately, Sion won’t be in the picture to circumvent the universe’s final destination for Valkyrie. He is leading a team through the war-torn nation of Bastille in the World of Rondure, seeking out the girl who owns the disembodied voice he’d been hearing for months.
His new friends on Rondure know about that voice, as they heard her too. And to Sion’s surprise, so has his cousin Erno.
Sion needs to continue his development to reach Wind Ruler status. Something he can only achieve with a face-to-face encounter with the girl.
Valkyrie knows she needs to survive long enough until Sion has already embarked on his mission before the Third Sister collects her. And she also needs to know he will be okay when she’s gone.
