When the Terrorist War destroyed the West, the Tribe survived high and remote in its distant valley, living in peace and harmony with the earth, following the Vision of its Founders and principles of Respect and Sharing. But the Tribe did not know that, financed from the distant Union, a new Empire had arisen in the ruins of Europe, where the rich and powerful live through exploiting and enslaving others. And when the Empire at last finds the Tribe, there is bloodshed. Some in the Tribe decide they must prepare for war. Others plan to preserve the Founders’ vision by teaching its values to the whole world. Patrick retreats to a place of healing. Sickened by the violence, he feels that the Tribe’s vision is not enough to preserve it. But Destiny brings Ciara a beautiful slave from the land of Erin. She has received from ancient places the energies of Munay Ki, lineages and visions of great healing and power. They alone can bring in the New Order that is now so desperately needed.
