Almost three hundred years of peace about to be shattered by one man. Vangor s Dark Knights have arrived in the Moon Lands a full three months earlier than anticipated. And with no King to unite the feuding Lords of the Moon this time their success is a surety! Or is it? Morkin, the heir apparent, clings to the faint hope of finding Zondra, the Queen of the Snow Faeries, who if the Fey are correct, can recreate his lost Crown. The same Crown needed to unite the Armies of man and without, all hope is surely lost. His journey north, though if not perilous enough, made even more so by the knowledge that one of his companions will betray him. But who? The mysterious hooded Shamar? The wizened old Ranabin? Or the despised deceitful Royal Taxman Mr Grabbit? And what of the Wolves of Fennigan? Are they to recover their Ancient Howl by delivering Morkin to Vangor? Or will they forsake its power and their heritage by choosing to aid the Crown Prince in his quest instead?
