Ten years ago, deep in the earth, threads untangled, and a monster shifted. Samuell and his adoptive brother believe that a shared future lays in entering the Elite Class of Samabrin's army. Those dreams are soon brought down when Samuell is tasked with a Quest and a green stone to guide him. Waimarie has many responsibilities as the Chief's first-born daughter. Born with one brown, one green eye, she feels a sense of camaraderie with the Elf she found washed up ashore, whose mismatched eyes strike her as strangely important.
