Long ago, a king fought a war
against a race of supernatural beings known as Old Ones. The battle was long
and costly, but in the end the Old Ones were “driven off the face of the earth”
and locked away. However, the war was neither won nor lost, as the spell meant
to contain them was not permanent. Centuries passed and the king who had taken
on the title of the Hunter faded into the pages of legend, to return, it is
said, when the Old Ones break free once again.
As a child, Malora Osonne’s
parents told her the story of the Hunter but she regarded it as just a Faerie
tale until strange things start happening that logic
has no answer for and she is forced to consider that the legend might be true.
But legends tell only half the story and she will discover that she has a much
greater role to play in this twisted drama of desire, revenge and madness than
merely inventor’s daughter.
