Marsellus was the rightful ruler of Branion, by virtue of both birth and the power of the Flame contained within him. Yet he had betrayed his heritage, cleaving to the opposing Essusiate religion and denying the Flame's power.

But now Llewellynne, a prince and seer in the neighboring kingdom of Gwyneth, has been granted a Flame vision of herself bearing a child of Marsellus--a child who would become the new vessel of the Flame and who can lead Gwyneth forces to victory in Branion.

Llewellynne succeed in transforming the vision into reality, giving birth to a son named Rhys. Gwyneth begins preparations, waiting for the day when Rhys will claim his heritage. For with the power of the Flame and the aid of his younger brother Llewen, is there any doubt that Rhys will triumph?

However, nothing is certain in a struggle fueled by the gods. And though Rhys and Llewen have been raised together, the fortunes of war may well drive them apart.
