Kaylen Thyr survived the cataclysm that destroyed his island home. He and a few thousand other survivors have a landed on the shores of a strange new land where humans were thought to be extinct. With friends and allies, Kaylen and his new wife, Alanora, must somehow unite fragmented human groups into a single society.
