After years of war, Earth has become a desert wasteland. However, hope is not completely lost. Hidden deep in the Desert of Beginnings lies the planet’s last hope. In an attempt to save Earth, Quinn Bravesford must lead an army of soldiers to find the Great Power. However, with opposing forces threatening you constantly, the journey will not be easy.
