The world of Lessi is almost completely ruled by an evil god in a crystal ball, the dark creature Monrath. In two years, when his forces have finished conquering the world, his crystal ball will break and he will be free. He will devour the world.
There is only one way to stop him – or, rather, only one man. The Dark Messenger has been looking into the void for message that can destroy the evil Monrath. He has returned to the world now, and is journeying to Monrath to deliver the message that will kill the evil god.
Mia, a quiet girl with not much to say, finds the Dark Messenger as he is dying. His powers get passed on to her, but the message that will defeat Monrath is lost. With the fate of the world in her hands, but lacking the one weapon that can save the world, what’s a girl to do?
The Dark Messenger is a bi-weekly serial that runs on Tuesday and can be found here:
