"For more than a hundred years, a bitter dispute over how the High King had been selected simmered in the dark halls of the royal family whose line had not been chosen. They held fast to their anger and bitterness through generations. Finally one of their sons, Arkov of Garia, seized the throne through treachery and by force of arms, claiming it as rightfully his. But in his haste to see the king and queen slain, Arkov failed to confirm the death of the young prince, Reyer, who was spirited away to safety. On a distant and mysterious island ruled by elves, where he was raised and trained by a trusted Captain of the slain High King, Reyer has now come of age. He has learned of his lineage--and those loyal to the bloodline of the true High King have rallied to his side. And though the forces of his enemy are far superior, Reyer will gather an army and lead them against the Usurper--to gain back the crown and kingdom stolen from him and to restore Mithgar to its rightful rule"--
