Kirin is a man with a mission. That mission is to raise an army from the mercenaries of Ailon, the despised nobodies, to fight off the Demon King Keld. Eileen and her friends find themselves pulled into this quest, fighting for their lives and, more importantly, for a reason to keep living. They must struggle not only against the monster armies, but also resentful peasants and untrustworthy lords. Above all, who is this man they are following? Where is he from? And what is this task he keeps mentioning? Will any of them live long enough to find out?
