After a brief, silent pause, the wall exploded. Fecians started pouring in by the minute. Darkblade didn't even have time to think the minute he saw a Fecian within his range, he stabbed him. He then cut another one's thigh five inches in, behind him. Another Fecian rushed him with a plasma blade. Their swords collided.

Seventeen-year-old Darkblade Huncong the 19th comes from the country of Corinthia on the planet Biblicia. He has everything: a girl to marry, men under his command, and a gifted skill for fighting. When the bloodthirsty Fecians invade Darkblade's world, his unique skills become vital to not only Darkblade but also his entire species. Now Darkblade finds himself in a position that could save or destroy his entire species and their world. Unfortunately, the battle rages for years, leading to Darkblade's two sons being the only men who can put their planet back together. Can Darkblade the 20th and Zechariah conquer the cruel Fecian Empire once and for all? Will the planet of Corinthia be saved, or will it become a Fallen nation?
