Finally, his vision cleared, and he gazed around the moonlit meadow. Where was he? Why was he lying in the grass? He bounded to his feet, but his body felt massive as he steadied himself on four legs-not two. Glancing down, he saw that the nightmare was a reality. The mist had been real. The sorcerer Garrette's mist had taken his human form away. This was Garrette's revenge against Darian's father. The great black stallion neighed furiously into the wind, rearing and angrily lashing out at the air with his hoofs. With a great lunge, he galloped up the side of the mountain, running furiously until his strength was spent.
He stood on the edge of a cliff, gasping for breath, a man trapped in a stallion's body-an equestrian prison. He gave another loud, mournful cry into the night...
Darian, youngest son of Lord Arlyn, has been trapped in the body of a black stallion by the sorcerer Garrette's spell. To break the enchantment, he must locate and retrieve the seven pieces of a broken (sundered) medallion that Garrette has concealed throughout the King of Takkarrai before it is too late. Until these pieces are found and the medallion made whole again, Darian will remain trapped in his equestrian prison. Darian is helped in his quest not only by the seven master sorcerers in the kingdom, but also by woodland fairies, sea and water nymphs, snow fairies, shape-shifters, whirlwinds, dwarfs, and a Pooka, but Garrette proves to be a worthy and heartless opponent. Darian's search will take him throughout the kingdom, from the Finian Mountains to the Shelmerdyne Sea to the Land of Desolation. He will battle against the elements, water sprites, a fierce eagle, poisonous mists and venomous briars. During the course of his adventure, Darian will learn the value of friendships and the difference between justice and revenge. In the midst of all this nightmare-ish mayhem, he will also meet Mendiana, a young woman with her own legacy to achieve-a young woman to love.
