In the aftermath of a continent-spanning war, an empire lost to time suddenly reappears in the frozen north of Equestria. Its beauty is unspoiled. Its magic, powerful. Its people, curious. Their first contact with the modern world has drawn the attention of all nations in the Pax Equestria Alliance.
In the interest of establishing diplomatic contact with the Crystal Empire, Equestria dispatches an envoy to the capital. But during the talks, reports of a new threat falls upon the diplomats’ table. Villages are being systematically wiped out and newly-emerged cities plundered for their ancient treasures. With no modern army to defend them, the Crystal Empire turns to Equestria for aid. Task Force Paladin from the Alliance airship flotilla is dispatched to provide protection as the Empire is brought up to speed on the modern world.
In the skies over the Crystal Empire, Firefly and the aviators of Timberwolf squadron fly into battle against the vicious beasts of the North and wily griffon pirates. But as the conflict escalates, the Timberwolves quickly realize that there is more to the fight than a few rogue griffons out for blood and coin.
