COHEED and CAMBRIA KILGANNON are the most notorious terrorists in the history of Heaven’s Fence. At least that’s what the villainous ruler, WILHELM RYAN, has conditioned everyone to believe. Their final suicide mission severed the Universe’s binding energy source [the Keywork], destroying a sector of planets and killing millions… What the public doesn’t know is that RYAN commissioned the creation of the pair as weapons of mass destruction years before, manipulating them to carry out his sinister plans.
10 years later, The Kilgannon’s only remaining son, CLAUDIO remains hidden on the desolate, “skid-row” planet of Shylos Ten. He is bitter because of his lot, his surroundings impairing his own ability to choose good over evil. Claudio has powers beyond his wildest imagination, but has abandoned them. He can’t forgive his parents for the scandal and shame they left behind and uses this as an excuse for squandering his life away.
Rebel forces have risen up against Ryan and his massive Red Army. Battle spreads across several planets, from the wasted remains of the broken sector to an underwater storm planet. The Rebellion is led by the headstrong INFERNO, backed by the PRISE, angelic guardians of the Keywork who’d failed to protect it from Coheed and Cambria. Their redemption lies in finding one spoken about in ancient prophecy who will bring judgment—a figure the Prise believe to be CLAUDIO. They send the beautiful, determined AMBELLINA to guide Claudio toward realizing his power as their only hope against Ryan.
THE AMORY WARS: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 asks the same question of this man, that so many of us ask ourselves: If good and evil co-exist, which side would you choose? And can you be better than those who came before?
