BLOOD TO OUR BLOOD. STEEL TO OUR STEEL.
In the future there is no want, no war, no disease nor ill-timed death. Bodies are shaped like clay into whimsical fantasies of mer-people, dwarves, and dragons. To wish is to have. The world is a paradise and humans are gods.
And then, in a moment, it ends. The council that controls the Net falls out and goes to war. Everywhere people who have never known a moment of want or pain are left wondering how to survive. However, scattered across the face of the earth there are communities for whom the Fall is survivable.
In the village of Raven's Mill, Edmund Talbot, master smith and unassuming historian, finds that all the problems of the world are falling in his lap. All this while his former lover and their only daughter struggle through the Fallen landscape and enemies, new and old, gather like jackals around a wounded lion. But what the jackals do not know is that while old he may be, this lion is far from death. And hidden in the past is a mystery that has waited 'until this time to be revealed.
You cross Edmund Talbot at your peril, for a smith is not all he once was.
