In the world of I-Star, an ancient legend speaks of a Divine Dictator who will bring about the downfall of the white magick that has dominated for centuries and activate a new era, ruled by vengeance. The I-Starians have idea that this Divine Dictator is their president, Dmitri von Calvin: an odious man who wears a mask to hide his true intentions. Dmitri's followers are prepared to overtake the world in darkness, but first, there is the matter of a spell. Part of the ancient legend refers to a Dark Messiah, a dragon in human form destined to rise with the black sword and assist the Divine Dictator in his mission. A spell has summoned the Dark Messiah, Cassidy Ann Mage, from hiding; however, Cassidy's backing is t absolute because she has defied the dictator in the past. But that was before she felt the power of the black sword. Cassidy feels as though the black sword is controlling her behaviors and thoughts. Although this Dark Messiah believes the sword is meant to protect her, it may have evil intentions, and Dmitri is counting on its assistance as he is building an army of evil, beneath the guise of antiterrorism. Cassidy and her friends are I-Star's only prospect for defense, but first, Cassidy must escape the dominion of the black sword before it is too late.
