Not only does he have the merciless Dragon Golems at his disposal, but also a device capable of enslaving the minds of those who come near him.

How can Emilia defend her kingdom against that kind of power? Soon, her friends unwittingly become her enemies and once again she is truly alone. A glimmer of hope comes in the form of an enemy who unexpectedly switches sides.
