In a world inspired by ancient Rome, Laia is a slave living in poverty with her family. When her brother is arrested for treason, she agrees to spy for rebels in exchange for help. At the military academy, she meets Elias, a soldier being trained to enforce the empire's tyranny. As their destinies become intertwined, they must make choices that will change the fate of the Empire itself.
Two fugitives undertake a perilous journey through the heart of an oppressive empire, fighting every step of the way against human and otherworldly forces. Laia is willing to risk everything to save her brother, even breaking into the Empire’s most secure prison. Meanwhile, Elias faces his own difficult choice: help Laia, or take his last chance at freedom. Along the way, they must outsmart sadistic wardens and former friends as they evade death at every turn.

But will their efforts awaken an ancient power that could lead to victory or an unimaginable doom?
