Once upon a spring morn in Faery, the gallant knight Roel rides into the Springwood and finds his true heart's desire in Celeste, princess of that domain. But before their love can blossom, Roel must rescue his sister from a dreadful lord who steals the soul of those he bears away. Wishing to aid her champion, Celeste tells Roel of a city in which lies a mysterious map - a map that may reveal the route to the dread lord's secret realm.
But Roel and Celeste's quest to find the vile lord's dark tower is complicated by the sinister creatures standing in their path. Aided by the Fates, who guide them in riddles they must first unravel, the princess and her knight follow their hearts on a desperate odyssey across shadow-lit borders to save Roel's soul-reft sister ere the dark of the moon.
