The land of Glendor has been a waste for an age. The people are starving, and the great fortress, Morcastle, is falling to ruins. King Mallin and his daughter, Indella, are on the brink of despair, for they no longer know how they can possibly help their dying people. But then, a handsome, wealthy prince name Ethys arrives, and he promises to return Glendor to its former glory . . . if he can but have Indella's hand in marriage. This proposal seems to be the answer to all of the kingdom's troubles, until Princess Indella discovers that Ethys is actually an evil dark lord planning to take over the realm and gain a power greater than anything anyone has seen. Desperate, Indella escapes to seek help from a legendary, powerful people that has been lost for centuries: the Elves of the deep Woods of Valnon.
