After their protector gods are stolen, a high school girl named Akane descends from the skies to the people of Kyou. She has within her the power of the Dragon God and is welcomed as a savior; but has she come to save Kyou, or destroy it? While she struggles to control her power, her demon summoner works behind the scenes to use her as a tool of vengeance. To make matters worse, the 8 Hachiyou who would defend her have not yet been fully gathered. Even as they come to Akane’s side, they must first fight their own demons before they can help her return Kyou’s gods…
