This is the ancient Hymn of the Pearl set in a more modern day. It's about a prince who is asked by his father to find a pearl that was stolen during the Rebellion. That pearl is a stumbling block between two peoples. It is in the hands of the serpent in a far-off country and he is to find it and get it back.
This is the story of his adventures and the adventures of those caught up in the quest.
