Ares is the half-Cerefin heir to a lost king in the North who fights a long war against the barbarian, half human cavemen Kargs. He struggles with a brilliant madness that leads to soaring heights and crashing lows. When his angelic twin sister, the silver haired Ariel, has a prophetic dream and sends Karin, a Cerefin healer, to advise him to take up his Crown, his evil cousin Vortigern, the regent, plots a violent takeover with the help of the black knight, Sir Baruk.
Against all advice, Ares sets out on a quest to find his lost father as his 21 year old son Prince Armlin rushes his forces to the gates of Castle Celerant to thwart Baruk's dirty deal with the Dark Lord.
Will the Noman horse lord tribes join with the Celerants to fight the Kargs? Will help from the mysterious Witch Queen ever arrive in time?
This is the tale of the Land of Lithian, a tale about a long ago war in the fossil record before the written history of the world. This book is a Game of Thrones type fantasy that was actually fully conceptualized 40 years ago -- twenty years before George R. R. Martin published his first Song of Ice and Fire novel!
