Thief. Vagrant. Scoundrel. Words to describe a nameless Demon born of Shadow, lost in a world of Humans. The elements are his to command, but for all his magic, he cannot cure himself of the fatal malady that is his bane.
In his desperate search for a remedy, he liberates a powerful immortal prince held captive inside a mountain. Eraekryst's ability to read and guide the thoughts of others leaves the Demon a wary companion as they venture to Mystland, the land of magic. Two witches will alter their fate and cast them far from the lives they had known. They decide to head north, to become part of a land where the earth is cold and black, and the motives of its inhabitants are just as obscure.
Their greatest threat watches and waits for their inevitable downfall. Seranonde the Huntress, a sinister immortal feared even by her own kind, has her sight locked upon both Eraekryst and the Demon. Only time will tell if they will fall victim to Seranonde's dark intentions, or if their own destructive tendencies will be their ultimate undoing.
