Where it all ends is where everything first began…

The empires of Zemuria have narrowly managed to escape the Great Twilight, a curse that threatened to end the world, thanks to the valiant efforts of those known as heroes. This has resulted in a ripple effect of events that hurtles the series toward its thrilling conclusion.

Following the Great Twilight calamity, the three protagonists across the Zemurian continent find themselves drawn together by the thread of fate.

Some are heroes, others are liberators, and yet others live as hermits. What will the people of Crossbell think of their newfound independence?

What will become of an empire which has lost one of its mighty limbs? And what of Ouroboros’ leader, the Grandmaster, and his ominous Eternal Regression Plan?
