The northern host of the Thessid army has crossed the river behind the armies defending the Middle Kingdoms and threatens to envelop them. The High King must retreat to the city of Abenton and secure its ports and ships for a river crossing or be cut off from the capital and trapped, and Artesia and her captains find themselves commanding the rearguard, faced with a wave of Thessid attacks in a grueling march: first armored lancers, then horse archers, and finally a pitched battle between pike and pike before the walls of the city. But even if the rearguard can achieve the gates of the city, will the boats to safety still be there, or will they be too late?…
