An Age of Legends
An ancient sorcerer threatens the balance of the Five Kingdoms. He arrives, unannounced, to slaughter the court of the King of Yaskatha. Only Prince D'zan and his bodyguard survive the horrors as the dead walk and the blood runs.
An Age of Heroes
Now, D'zan must call upon his father's allies to reclaim his throne. Seven Princes from across all the lands – the three sons of the Giant King Vod, the Princes of Uurz – a natural leader of men and his brother, the scholar – and the war-like Andoses, heir to the throne of Shar Dni. Each are loyal to their own cause and each has their own destiny.
An Age of War
But not all destinies are legend. Some will fight. Some will fall. Some will rise. One thing is certain – war is coming. Princes will clash and blood will run.
