Each of these books contains a multitude of sonnets that depict important events in the history of Rivellon. The most popular one in this volume is:

On the Death of the Divine

A sad affair it is indeed,

When son and father shall engage in battle

But neither'd pause and neither'd cede,

Both knew that soon the swords would rattle.

Two abstract concepts: good and evil,

Meet to wage the final war,

to bring about the great upheaval

To end the evil they abhor.

But just though Damian viewed his quest,

He woke the wrath of Dragon Knights.

They feared the plague, the coming pest,

For Lucian's cause they swore to fight

Then darkest of hours befell our wordl,

As Dragon's treason a new age unfurlled.
