The continuing saga of Thirrin, Queen of Icemark.


Twenty years have passed since Queen Thirrin and Warlock Oskan allied themselves with the Wolf-folk, the Vampires, and the Snow Leopards to defeat the vast Polypontian armies, but now Scipio Bellorum is planning a second attack with his sons and armies and new weaponry. Thirrin sends her son Charlemagne to the southern continent with a band of exiles in order to save at least part of her threatened country and names him Crown Prince of Icemark. Medea, jealous of Charlemagne and her other siblings pursues Dark magic and turns ally to the enemy, working towards destruction of Charlemagne and the rest of her family. Great battles are fought and many lives are destroyed. Meanwhile, Charlemagne is gathering a band of warriors from the south to turn the tides of the war against the Polypontian armies.
