Her mentor Mercurio has been captured and Consul Julius Scaeva stands on the edge of total dominance over the Republic. Truedark approaches and if Mia is to have any hope of defeating Scaeva and saving her family, she must make a perilous journey across the Republic seeking the final answers to the riddle of her life.
