While the Kingdom of Myrridia celebrates the wedding of their young king, the spirit of a slain Magical practitioner is resurrected in neighboring Wyckendom. Since Myrridia's archbishop Edward Fitzroy no longer has any Magical abilities, it falls on the shoulders of Princess Allyson Claybourne, sister of Myrridia's king, to battle this enemy. But unknown to many in Myrridia, Allyson is following an unorthodox Magical path - one completely unacceptable (anathema?) to Myrridia's Church. Meanwhile, Allyson's brother, King Robert Claybourne, has his own foe to meet on the field of battle - King Nicholas II of Wyckendom - who will stop at nothing to acquire Myrridia. In desperate times, heroes come forward...willing to do whatever it takes....even if it means paying the ultimate price.
