In this classic Romantic Fantasy story, Thomas Johnson brings us a sweeping tale of a prince, and his valiant quest to restore his land after a deadly attack wipes out half its population.
The Royal House of Azarael sends Prince Gabriel on a secret mission to a well-hidden site in the impressive Custelle Range along the western shores of their Continentem, Praespero. While crossing storm-swept seas, his royal vessel falls under a vicious attack. Lord Gabriel escapes death by leaping from the sinking ship. He struggles through tumultuous seas to the southwestern shores of Praespero, where he wanders, alone, through vacant farmlands until he encounters Aylin, a robust and brass woman from Imperium Bénézet.
As they trek across the land, Gabriel and Aylin develop an unspoken love as they create a company of trustworthy people to assist the prince in his plans for restoration.
Can Lord Gabriel, and Aylin, lead their forces to victory before the enemy can bring further carnage?
