The immense kingdom of the Sons of the Earth has been shaken to its foundations. The ancient enemy, The Drekkars, have emerged from the shadows after a silence of ten centuries.
Since the Great March of Afenor, the city of Farkas has closed itself off to the outside world. Under the aegis of the Dragons, who live as inaccessible deities, this isolated city-state in the heart of the Pass, has developed a hierarchical system, full of intrigue and plots. The Emperor, the elected representative of the Dragons, alone knows the real motivation of their masters. But when he pushes the Drekkars towards an open war against the outside, opponents begin to be heard. From the High Castle to the Enclaves, where slaves await their messiah, the rumor of a revolt is growing.
