From the back of the book:
The world of man is dead. The shining cities and glittering skies have been sundered by the Fall. Now their corpses lie in pools of pollution and the twisted creations of arcane artifice haunt their halls.
The world of man is born again.
Refined by apocalyptic fires, the survivors have emerged into the light. With remembered lore, keen blades and fierce loyalty they will retake the world.
