There are two types of men: ordinary men and men with blue blood called resurgents. The blue blood imparts, in various degrees, longevity, strength and exceptional speed, as well as, in some very rare cases, sensorial powers, and the ability to influence reality.
Orville is fleeing from the Goulet archipelago with Petrus, the Goulet community poet. Managing to escape from the pirates plaguing these waters, they are taken in by rebels who are organising resistance against the terrifying dictatorship set up by the Guard in the seven kingdoms. Orville gets to know an underground world that has been fighting for survival for four centuries and he understands that the aim of the quest he is currently pursuing aims to destroy this network that has rescued him. He will have to make a choice, which is not easy for a soldier conditioned to obey.
Rosa and her companions have continued on their challenging route in the Jourd desert, and discover a resurgent society that fled repression four centuries earlier and have since been living completely cut off from the world. Rosa meets a magus there who shows her ancient manuscripts which she attempts to understand. They were written by a couple of scribe slaves, survivors of a flood, in order to warn humanity about the return of the Nalattes...
The Guard also tries to decipher and translate some manuscripts written in an ancient language so that their chief, Lothar, can strengthen his dominance on humanity. In his breeding farm for blue men that he has gathered together with the help of genealogical registers, blue births from the people will become soldiers and those from the nobility will replace existing nobles in the fiefdoms.
But the survivors of the Nalattes, who have lost a great deal of their knowledge and memory, have in fact secretly infiltrated the mysteries of power and hold Lothar under their control.
The time of war has come...
