Synopsis

Japanese

愛が、二人を引き裂いた。

竜殺しの英雄、シギベルト率いるノーヴェルラント帝国軍。伝説の島「エデン」の攻略に挑む彼らは、島を護る竜の返り討ちに遭い、幾度も殲滅された。
エデンの海岸に取り残され、偶然か必然か――生きのびたシギベルトの娘ブリュンヒルド。竜は幼い彼女を救い、娘のように育てた。一人と一匹は、愛し、愛された。
しかし十三年後、シギベルトの放つ大砲は遂に竜の命を奪い、英雄の娘ブリュンヒルドをも帝国に「奪還」した。
『神の国で再会したければ、他人を憎んではならないよ。』
復讐に燃えるブリュンヒルドの胸に去来するのは、正しさと赦しを望んだ竜の教え。従うべくは、愛した人の言葉か、滾り続ける愛そのものか――。
第28回電撃小説大賞《銀賞》受賞の本格ファンタジー、ここに開幕!

English

Love tore them apart.
The Noverland Imperial Army led by Sigibert, the hero of the dragon slayer. They challenged to capture the legendary island “Eden” and were annihilated many times by the dragon’s return to protect the island. Left behind on the coast of Eden, by chance or inevitability-Brynhildr, the daughter of Sigibert who survived. The dragon saved her little girlfriend and raised her like her daughter. One and one were loved and loved.
However, thirteen years later, the cannon fired by Sigibert finally took the life of the dragon, and “regained” the hero’s daughter Brynhildr to the empire.

“If you want to meet again in the kingdom of God, don’t hate others.”
Brynhildr’s vengeful chest comes to the dragon’s teachings for her righteousness and forgiveness. Is it the words of a loved one or the love that continues to linger in order for her to obey?
The 28th Dengeki Novel Grand Prize “Silver Award” winning full-scale fantasy begins here!
