Although the TuGrikNg, with the aid of Tobias and AkMalia, had succeeded in protecting their homes, Abahrazha faces an even greater peril. Kalor is now ruled by a madman, who vows to resurrect the ancient and powerful kingdom of Arcalia to exact his vengeance on all of Abahrazha. Yet the prophecies of a dying religion speak of this time when the fate of the world would rest in the hands of a child one of royal blood and one who would be innocent of the destruction of Kalor. Help, nevertheless, comes from unexpected sources and people. But nothing is ever as it seems, for the words of prophecy were written in the holy Merot the sacred texts of the Brothers and Sisters of Paradise. The gods of power had forewarned many eons before.
