Two hundred years ago in the magical realm of Santara, where two moons shone overhead, there lives a young boy named Raino and his parents in a small village. Evil surges forth, ripping the town to shreds. Knights sent to destroy the monsters fail. All that is left to do is try magic.
A young Lion-Person named Cato wanders out of the Forbidden Forest, where his people have been trapped for centuries and discovers the magical world of Santara, watched over by a magnificent palace. At the marketplace, Cato meets Princess Alzena, a woman who doesn’t want to be a princess. They quickly blossom a friendship together but many circumstances tear them apart, forcing Cato to go on a dangerous quest to stop his transformations forever and free his people from the curse.
Will Cato succeed in ending the curse? The answers are inside… The Curse of the Lion People!
