«Hear the song of Trajan Drevo,
The Castle of the Enduring Tree.
Brave youths and gracious maidens
Dance there no more, nor are guests
Feasted with honor at well-laden tables…"
An ancient secret casts its shadow over the castle, and over the two people who are its only hope of redemption: Martin, the long lost son of a powerful nobleman, and Ylla, the last survivor of a family destroyed by treachery. Their fates are interwoven for good or ill, in a tale of love unlooked for, of vengeance not to be denied.
