Even if there is something in there, Rustav thought, forcing his unwilling feet into a pounding run, it can’t be any worse than the island demons.
Young ruffian Rustav is carrying a dangerous secret—one his uncle won’t hesitate to kill for. Rustav is determined to escape his abusive uncle and hated homeland, even if it means braving the demon-infested forest.
Now on the run, Rustav has only two options: turn and fight his uncle and the bloodthirsty demons of the islands, or flee into the unknown and face the mysterious dangers of the forest.
His escape is halted, however, when a race of legendary beings reveal him to be the country’s fabled heir. Forced to choose between following his destiny and saving his life, Rustav soon discovers that his only hope of surviving lies in the mysteries of his past.
As the people rally around him, Rustav teeters precariously between raising his people from the dust or destroying them from the inside.
