Denthos Merdian is a blue-eyed prince in the line of the Volnor Gray-Eyed Kings. Den's father, King Tothos Merdian, is in the midst of dealing with the renegade Timber Lord when he is struck down by a magical spell of madness. The 17-year-old prince must step forward to stop the Timber Lord's demand for Volnor lands and to direct the Volnor Shield and Fist armies against the Timber Lord's Helm force. Sensing an assassin's hand close to the throne, Ebelos, the high priest of Beralk, advises that Den take refuge with a wizard named Dermeth. Den's bodyguard, an immense Westerner named Rek, leads a small band to Dermeth's castle. Den must defend the realm against the rebellious Timber Lord, treason in the royal court, the Timber Lord's magical ally and a horde of barbarian Ralg. To complicate his effort, Beralk (the Volnor god) has turned his back on his worshipers. Only the young prince holds the key to victory...
