Hope exists in the form of Ren Yi, whose scarred heart carries the fate of the Jin-song. Some consider Ren an alchemic savant and strategic genius. But much more doubt his leadership, including himself.
In the struggle to save the Jin-song, Ren learns he must sacrifice those he holds dear, including the girl he loves most. Will he choose the love of his life? Or will he forsake his people to save her?
