She was given a second chance to win a war that no one else was fighting.
Cerise, queen of the Vermilion people, was killed in battle at the end of a long war against invaders from the East. Now she is being sent back for a second chance at winning a war nobody else is fighting. In the body of the enemy, Cerise struggles to understand the new world, her people’s place in it, and her legacy. She thought she was going back to end one war — she didn’t know the war was long over and most of her people have already moved on.
