Plot Summary: Forty-four years have passed since the Valbanill War, a horrific time when Demon Pacts were used regularly to summon malignant spirits to ensure victory. Since then, Demon Pacts have been declared forbidden. During this time of peace, Cecily Campbell wishes to follow in her family’s footsteps and become a member of the prestigious Knight Guard for the Independent Trade City of Housman. Her first mission goes awry when she faces off against a crazed war veteran, only to have her heirloom blade shatter. It is then that Luke Ainsworth, a renowned blacksmith, steps in to save her wielding a strange sword of his own. Impressed by his skills and in awe of his craftsmanship, she has him join her while she faces off against demons and asks him to forge her a new blade.
