Billy Binder lived in a very different world from the other kids at school. It was a place of eternal cold, a land of snow dragons and ice princesses ruled by a dark figure called the Ringmaster. A world wihtout hope, without fear, without pain, where anger was the greatest weapon, the greatest strength. A land called the Fallen Counrty. It was a desolate, forsaken place, but it was better than the real world Billy had left behind. Until a group of friends dared to cross over into Billy's private world, and help him learn the secret of the Ringaster's power.
