This is the first of three novels in a trilogy. The setting is during the centuries following a devastating plague. Mankind had finally returned to the ‘middle ages’ of technology, so to speak. The story follows the life of Prince Parno McLeod, youngest son of the ruling Dynasty in Soulan. Shunned by his family after his mother died in childbirth with him, Parno is far from the ideal example of the ruling family. But the black sheep prince will soon have to grow up. Grow up very fast indeed. For war is coming. War like no other in the history of his kingdom. And despite his disdain for his family, Parno loves his land, and his people. In a last ditch effort to save his people from being defeated, Parno will lead a small band of soldiers, criminals, and misfits into battle against an army many times their size.
And the stakes couldn’t possibly be higher.
