In a world of Nirzan, two entities exist. Skarvhall City, the capital, and the Raznik colonies. While Skarvhall's king, Rydar believes in the all powerful dragons, the people of Raznik believe in a much older force. They worship the old gods of Norse mythology. The problem is that those gods were vanquished by the dragon Fafnir several thousands of years ago.
Adler E. Rheyhart is a newly appointed knight in service of his father, Nirzan's General. He knows a little about strategy, after all his father is the general. But his greatest and most astounding ability is that he can wield a 25 pound claymore with one hand. He's not to bad with it either.
With the dragon child, Harold, he fights giants, werewolves and the insect like Gryar, but as he goes further into the colonies, he finds a conspiracy to kill the Dragon-gods and resurrect the old ones. What he finds may be scarier than the breath of any dragon, and it might hold a peculiar prophecy about his role in the church and his homeland.
