The kingdoms of Yule are on the brink of disaster. A mysterious silver-haired foe has overrun the city of Theor, one of the most powerful strongholds in the East, and the royal family has disappeared except for a princess, exiled to the north.
From the height of her imposing fortress, she watches the devastation of the land where she grew up helplessly.
Far away, hidden in the heart of the Hen Forest, two beings endowed with supernatural strength watch the enemy’s advance. But when an erstwhile general who has fled from the invaded city shows up on their doorstep, they cannot refuse to help him.
The time to act has come.
