Story Synopsis

At twenty years of age, Lydia had been married early but happily. She had entered a privileged social class and enjoyed the opportunity of higher education, all through the blessings of a chance encounter.

However the joys of family proved fickle compared to the fate of states. After a mysterious horde from the east invaded her home country, Lydia’s entire life came crashing down.

The Eastling scourge brought forth a holocaust of destruction, leaving cities in smoldering ruins and bloodied corpses far as the eye can see. The brutality of war consumed noble bloodlines and peasant communities alike, as a string of battlefield defeats saw generations of men reduced to fields of white bones.

For the first time in Polisian history, necessity pressed the military to conscript women. Lydia unexpectedly found herself near the center of attention, where she met the Protectress of Samara once again. A divine gift offered hope for her entire country: one of the greatest military masterminds that time had ever seen, brought in from the distant realm of Earth.

However, no man could change history on his own. He would have to cooperate with Lydia, plus an inexperienced female officer corps that he openly mocked. Victory or annihilation hung in the balance. But one fact stood for certain:

The roles and expectations of society would never stay the same.

  1. I don’t know where the appropriate place to point this out is, but you have a text widget at the bottom of all pages that has default text 😉


  2. Hmmm so I’m not sure but I don’t think the Imperium of the Great Khan is the same as the Dawn Imperium so does that mean that Kannon had to bail the Samarans out twice by sending them a good general?

    Also I’m guessing somewhere between 500 and 1000 Imperial for this story.


      1. Uh yeah that’s why I said I wasn’t sure.

        If they’re the same I don’t understand where to place this on the timeline though. Is the timeline still correct or have you changed some stuff?

        Unless this is Chaos after all and that Emperor of the North guy wasn’t a Hyperborean I guess? My issue with that was the tech, although I am not actually familiar enough with either military history or engineering to truly say.


  3. Will this series have less of a focus on the magical elements of combat and more emphasis on “traditional” rank and file warfare? That’s the feel I’m sort of getting after the first read-through. I’m not sure if that’s because you intend for this specific POV, or magical combat isn’t as prevalent during this time on Hyperion.
