Hightspall is dying. Every year the winters worsen, and the realm's protective magic disappeared with the traitor-king, Lyf, two thousand years ago. Now Lyf is back, bent on wiping Hightspall off the map and rebuilding his ancient land anew. A slave orphaned by Lyf, Tali holds the key to saving the realm - or destroying it. Can she stop him before he tears Hightspall apart, and plunges the world into perpetual darkness?
