Long ago, there was a war in Heaven. Rann, guardian of the Underworld, fought with the Nulefi, and in that battle, the Nulefi were defeated. Though their bodies were destroyed, the shattered spirits of the Nulefi remained, drifting, seeking form and memory. Now their spirits are reborn in the guise of the Swarms of Myrand a human boy, Vivreki, has witnessed that rebirth. One of them haunts his mind, pleading for his help. But to his masters, this is heresy. His life in peril, Vivreki is hidden away from those that might kill him for his knowledge. His memory is erased, his past denied, and a new life is started for him half a world away. But the Nulefi have not forgotten Vivreki, for he alone can hear them, he alone can save them. And as they struggle for survival, the father of the gods, Herrukal, discerns the rise of this new power on Myr, and threatens to destroy Creation itself. And only Vivreki can stop him.
