Lured by the Hunt
The world fell when the gates of hell opened. From Edoum, the Bul-Gae Hunters rose and shattered peace between mankind and Fae. They advanced, lured by the hunt, to feast upon the flesh of Fae, and as society crumbled, they began to play their game.
Populations dwindled. Cities collapsed. Days grew hot. Nights cold. Man turned on man, and the streets flooded red. Forced to flee from Taeyang, Ria Akintola, bearer of the Sun, ran towards fool's hope. For her brother, her kingdom, her future -- she'd sworn to save them. She'd sworn to kill the host that fed the Bul-Gae with power until their blood inked her skin.
But it was all a lie.
Unable to admit the impossibility of salvaging her Kingdom from the ashes of the dead, Ria unites with the Moon to assassinate the host before the King can rise from a sinner's flame. But it comes at a cost.
She must endure the twelve trials of Joesung, or risk the tethers which bind her to life being destroyed. But when the tethers are already fragile, it's not long before they break, and the Sun begins to slip from the horizon.
