Chronicles of the One

It has been thirteen years since the Doom killed more than half of the Earth’s population. Thirteen years since the rise of magicks and the “Purity Warriors”, whose self-proclaimed mission is to seek and destroy those with gifts. It is also Fallon Swift’s thirteenth birthday, and she can no longer deny her destiny as The One, the hope for the future of mankind.
