Two conflicting kingdoms are at war, a war that is impossible to win. Ruthless King Garside wants his empire of Dorandum to rule the south. His beautiful daughter, Princess Indunessa, is a warrior leader and must lead her kingdom's warriors into battle with Anaximander, Keralis' warrior leader. But she fails to kill Anaximander, and returns to face her father's rage. Keeping an eye on her but punishing her none the less, he sends her to visit the farms of his kingdom. Ores, young son of Farmer Paltronis, is viewed as becoming too fond of the Princess, and she of him, so the Paltronis family is imprisoned and Ores is sent to Ghostly Havens, left there to die by the hand of the ghosts within. But Ores returns, in a different form. He is now a warrior in his own right but one with powers that are no match for those he must face. Will he vindicate his family's loss and put an end to Garside's reign of terror, or will he fail as others have done. David Mannina has written a tale of justice for the simple folk, but used the form of fantasy to carry his message. It is story with many twists and turns, and great imagination. Illustrations help readers visualize many of the characters. The writing style and use of difficult vocabulary does not make this a book for young readers but older youth and young adults will enjoy this novel.
