When Marianna was kidnapped, everyone expected a ransom demand to follow. For such was the peril of royal life in Dark Ages Albion. But when weeks passed without word, High King Mattheus, dispatched knights to find her and bring her assailants to account.
Erik of Birkenshire was one of these. Driven onward by precious memories of stolen tender moments, he searched for her. However when he stood before a grim fortress, he found not the damsel of his youthful desires, but a terrifying being borne of an ancient evil that bound his soul to a primal force bent on reentering this world.
Now caught between two worlds, he must resist the temptations of his beloved-turned-succubus while protecting everything he loves from the encroaching grasp of Arawn, Lord of Annwyn. In this journey to regain his soul, the knight must find a way to strike the fatal blow against a resurgent primal darkness.
