The foremost city-state of Sylyria is in the cold grasp of Lindos, a cruel wizard who has mastered the magic to turn 10,000 years of peace into a reign of horror. Rejected in his marriage proposal to the beautiful noblewoman Juilene, the evil Lindos plagues her with a hateful curse: anyone who helps her will be destroyed. A forlorn exile with nothing more than her harp, the young songsayer flees her home to protect her family. But, in the distant city of Khardroon, she meets a mysterious knight prophesied to be the true savior of Sylyria — and the confrontation with Lindos is now inevitable.
