Days before he turns eighteen, however, someone new steps into his life. From the distant western lands of Corana, the girl named Thesaly is beautiful and mysterious. Their meeting fills him with hope. Yet, as the boy tries to win the beautiful stranger over, Karesh warns him of a prophecy foretold by the first Seer of Kakut, which threatens her very existence. At first, Taye dismisses it, but as the situation on the streets of Meden deteriorates, he soon realizes that Thesaly is in danger. As the web surrounding her tightens, Taye is forced to choose a path that will send him beyond the walls of Meden, into a world where Karesh's prophecies become terrifying reality.
