Chiyo Alglaeca was living a happy with her husband Michael and their daughter Hannah. When she unexpectedly finds herself in a faraway land of Dashkalil with no memory of how she got there. She meets up with Muhjah and Senka on the road escaping the nyims wrath. Muhjah and Senka are drawn to Chiyo in ways neither can explain. Chiyo does not accept being helpless and tries to change her circumstances for herself and those around her. Senka believes Chiyo is Muhjah's pet project and limits his contact with her. Muhjah starts teaching Chiyo how to defend herself and eventually Senka helps with this as well. Andela secretly worships in the Sacerdosita of Kali and knows of a little known prophecy about the Arm of the Goddess. Andela believes that Chiyo is the Arm of the Goddess. Senka, Muhjah, and Chiyo disrupt the nyims all over Dashkalil but avoid the capital city in their wanderings. Emperor Kenichi is tired of this band of rebels being a thorn in his side. It's time to bring this to an end. Chiyo is captured and tortured at the Emperor's command. Senka and Muhjah rescue Chiyo with the help of Sacerdosita on one condition but neither of them like the condition yet accept it. Will Chiyo ever return to her family? What does Chiiyo think of the condition? Can Senka and Muhjah help Chiyo in her task? What is the ultimate goal of Sacerdosita? Your answers await you in The Weeping Empress.
