The fate of a kingdom depends on just one person...
When sixteen-year-old Tiuri answers a desperate call for help, he finds himself on a perilous mission that could cost him his life. He must deliver a secret letter to the King who lives across the Great Mountains a letter upon which the future of the entire realm depends.
It means abandoning his home, breaking all the rules and leaving everything behind even the knighthood that he has dreamed of for so long.
He must trust no one.
He must keep his true identity secret.
Above all, he must never reveal what is in the letter.
