From the dust jacket: "A young Runelord, Prince Gaborn Val Orden of Mystarria, is traveling in disguise across the sunlit fall countryside of Sylvarresta, his only companion the warrior bodyguard Boeenson. Gaborn is absorbing the beauty of the land and becoming acquainted with its people, preparing himself to ask for the hand of Princess Iome, heir to the throne of Syulvarresta. While stopping at a local tavern Gaaborn notices a pair of foreigners, powerful men who move with supernatural grace and strength--assassins. This moment of recognition brings an abrupt end to Gaborn's sheltered upbringging, launching him into the dangerous realm of politics and treachery. His pleasant journey becomes a perilous race to warn the King of deadly danger. What seems to be a threat to the royal family rapidly escalates into a threat to all human life. The very Earth is in pain. Its wounds much be healed. There must arise a new king: the Earth King must be reborn. Only then will humanity have a chance to survive."
