Year of the Lord of 1600, Japan boils in a never-ending civil war. Seigniors alternate alliance and betrayal in a strategy game where each of them tries to assume the complete direction of the country of gods.
Fushimi’s fortress will not resist the siege and the samurai Saigō Hayabusa is willing to cut his stomach open without complaining. However, the mission his Lord has kept for him will require a sacrifice much bigger than death.
The Kingdom of Spain is going through a period of maximum territorial growth, but Philip III, a weak and hedonistic king, has left the court in the hands of Lerma’s duke, who is impoverishing the country and breaking the imperial foundations. Dámaso Hernández de Castro, an expert at Flanders campaigns, is preparing to go to the East Indies and get in the service of the judge of Manila’s Court. He will have to strive for recognition and make up for his insufficient lineage if he aims for the hand of his loved one, the lady in waiting Constanza de Accioli. He will soon find out that someone has disguised a trap as an opportunity.
Destiny will weave its nets and a chance meeting will connect Saigō and Dámaso’s lives forever.
