Castles, magic and sorcery abound in this fantasy tale of a young woman, Eryka Danek, as she sets out on a journey in search of her destiny.
She finds herself alone when a strange storm erupts, destroying her village and killing all its inhabitants, including her parents.
The dark lord, Alazais Moorlange, upon hearing in his mind the reciting of a sacred rune ritual, conjures a vision and sees his next conquest.
Summoning his ageless, shape-shifting abilities, the old wizard is transformed into a young mage; his intent, to deceive and capture his newest victim.
Eryka unwittingly falls under the enchanter's spell, but it is not strong enough to thwart an intervention by a vengeful ghost.
Will Alazais' powers rule, enabling him to keep this innocent? Or will his nemesis, Hendrik Naguum, save Eryka from suffering the same fate as the vile wizard's wife.
