Under winter's cold abroud, the son of light lies
Though the summer sun burns high in the skies.
With the last petal of the starthorn tree
His wandering spirit shall at last slip free...
Nothing can save him from this bitter curse,
But the turning of time itself inverse.
The young Count of Estelliana lies sleeping, as still and cold as if he was dead. His mysterious slumber has subjected the people of his land to the harsh rule of Lord Zavion, the cold and ruthless Regent. But when Durrik, the son of the town's bell-crier, involuntarily prophesizes the count's death before the entire starkin court, he catapults himself and his best friend Pedrin into the adventure of their lives.
Pursued by starkin soldiers, they must seek refuge in the Perilous Forest, home to the dangerous and unpredictable wildkin. It is only when they are forced into the company of the spoilt starkin princess Lisandre and her servant-girl Briony that they begin to realise the meaning of Durrik's riddle. But if they are to waken the count and save their people, they must first survive the hazards of the forest where the sinister Erlrune of Evelinn awaits them...
