The demon king has been defeated, and a devastating war averted. The kingdom of Avaraline is on the slow road to recovery with Alysia at the helm.
Velvet sleeps, wrapped in magical crystal, Myne inactive, unwilling to do anything without her lover, the previous cost too high and too raw for them both.
But things are far from over. Ignoring that the demon king's retinue are still at large, and the neighbouring kingdoms are restless because of what had transpired, the world is stirring, the winds of change are blowing, the world on the brink of another evolution, the consequences of which will be more far reaching than anyone realizes.
Destiny however has plans of it's own. Chris, a young man discovering the truth about himself, and Rachael, a young woman hiding who she is, are both about to find themselves intertwined in the fate of the world.
When secrets come to the surface, the results can be far beyond what either party considered. Especially when they hail from an earlier age...
This story is Book 2 in the Dawn Weaver universe, and takes place some years after the first.
However, it can be read independently of the first book (while knowledge of the first book may make some things clearer, it is not needed at all to understand most of what is going on and enjoy the story for what it is). The two main characters are new characters, as is the majority of the cast.
Note that this story is much heavier on the transgender themes than book 1, it and comes into it from very early in the story. The gender bender element itself don't come into play until much later however.
It is also not an Isekai story, at least not from a technical viewpoint.
Currently using the volume 2 cover, which was commissioned from haime22, and features the third main character.
Previous cover art was also commissioned for this story, and featured Rachael & Crystal. Higher res version is linked in the relevant chapter(s).
