With the defeat of Valeria behind him, Endrance has only the Malchoir left to track down.
The world wouldn’t be able to handle even one Mercanian regaining their power. They had kept humankind as slave labor and a source of blood for their own magical rituals and would certainly do so again.
While he didn’t know for certain what Malchoir had planned, it involved going deep into a region of the world called the Shatter: the destroyed homeland of the Mercanian Empire so terribly besotted with magic gone wrong that nothing could live there and not be warped by its influence.
First, Endrance will need to find a way to navigate the natural dangers of the Shatter and hope that he can catch up to Malchoir before it is too late.
