Zeld has never done anything grand with his life, like fighting a dragon or riding on a cloud to save the king. In an age of magic and mystical creatures his life is about to change. You see, Zeld’s father was murdered and his family forced into exile. Now that he is of age, he will be returning to his homeland and enrolling in the Castles and Caverns School of Knighthood.
The Hess family, who murdered Zeld’s father and captured the de Saxon castle, has long awaited Zeld’s return and are only too glad to greet him with innocent smiles on their faces and sharpened daggers behind their backs.
Will the rules of chivalry protect him long enough to be able to reclaim his birthright? Will he be able to rebuild the de Saxon alliance? Or will his family be destroyed before he has begun his valiant quest?
