What is the strange incessant music that keeps Wilhelm and his people, the Hundeiss, in slavery?
When Wilhelm escapes from the mines in which he has spent his entire life, he finds a world that he didn't know existed - a world that he neither recognises nor understands.
But will anyone believe his story - and will anyone help him on his quest to unravel the centuries-old mystery that will release his people from slavery?
