Protected by its geographical location the Kingdom of Auden has, from its very inception, existed in an old time.
Ann-Ulka, guided by a vision, embarks on a perilous quest thus forging a close bond with the Royal family of Auden.
To change the course of Auden’s history, Enirac, the weaving spider, chooses the elfin Princess Nimiande, but plans can go wrong as Cave-dweller Heron discovers. She realises that the Forest Mountain Refuge is more than its name implies, especially when Aeris Odī-Bengu of the Fenga Islands needs her help. A jewel is placed in her safekeeping.
Far across the valley at the Royal palace, Queen Eleandra reluctantly accepts that, unlike her, the King will always put self before sworn duty.
It falls to Princess Honore to ensure the future of Auden’s Royals.
