When Elizabeth’s life is threatened, Tristan flees to the kingdom of Edinburgh, where Deathpierce, a former member of the Holy Knights group Pleiades of the Azure Sky, resides in his castle. But what are Deathpierce’s true intentions?
The wheel of destiny starts turning, entangling even The Seven Deadly Sins…
