Pandora's box has opened and hell has broken loose. Unfortunately for Valeriana Kerrigan, she had the front seat at the cutting of the ribbon. Now, she's deep in cow dung-or rather, under the claws of a demon. Fortunately, she is saved by the skin of her throat by a sword-wielding woman who claims to be from another world. And that's just the appetizer.
For the entrée, apparently, is entering Pandora's box itself-which she later finds out is called Valemnia. With Earth potentially being involved in Valemnia's pesky pest problem, Valeriana is unable to take a neutral stance. Leaving the busy streets of modern-day Boston, albeit unwillingly, she takes a plunge to brave a whole new world in the most literal sense-one which mirrors hers with a dash of surrealism, beasts, demons, and even locals who wield the elements like second nature.
Despite the minor setbacks (and being human), she is confronted by a path she cannot hope to never take: pick up arms, survive eight years in an academy as a knight-in-training, and help push back the demons plaguing Valemnia. However, to do so, she may just have to let go of her humanity.
