FG and DC Laval
Allan Lanner has just turned sixteen and is about to find out a truth about his history and his parentage that will rock his very existence. Before departing on a trip to deliver a sword to Castle Helmstedt, he finds a notebook that someone has left to burn on the fire. Carefully retrieving the book, Allan discovers the account of a sinister and shocking story, written in his motherís hand. He steals the book and reads it along his journey. As his motherís story unfolds, Allan encounters a number of challenges, which lead him from being held captive by brigands, to being rescued by a troop of southern chevaliers, then finally finding his way to Castle Helmstedt and an audience with the King.
Demaris Delíoro is from a small town in northern Arrontierre, where she has just come into the rights to her land and title. Sent to Carentan for an arranged betrothal, she meets Allan at the smithy where she is accompanied by the King of Carentan to choose a new sword.
Rumbles of discontent ripple through the Western Isles as Klagenstill raiders are seen as far south as Arrontierre and the Emperor is putting pressure on the King of Carentan to intervene. In the meantime, a legendary Klagen figure resides in the northern forests unaware of his future destiny. Allan embarks on a journey to discover the truth behind his motherís story and is unwittingly drawn into a deep and dark plot for revenge harboured by the Countess, Delíoro.
