Since the dawn of history, the four kingdoms of Tarot have lived in peace and prosperity, guarded by the mystical beings known as the Arcana. But something has changed. Fierce raiders known as Sea Wolves stalk the lands of Tarot, burning and killing. Dark sorcery is at work as well, sowing havoc, ruin and terror wherever it touches. And the guardians of Tarot have not stirred themselves from their home on Mount Arcanum to defend the land.
In the Kingdom of Swords, a simple farm boy named Kiet makes an incredible discovery – one that could save his land from the terrible forces of destruction that beset it, or see him quickly dead. If his epic quest is to succeed, he will have to learn quickly, and stay one step ahead of the many enemies who want to take from him both is discovery, and his life.
