Under the cloud of imminent Roman invasion, the northern druids gather the clan leaders. Calach is the 15 yo eldest son of the chief of the Caledonii Clan, and is cast into clan politics for the first time. Destined to be chief one day, and knowing the importance of the gathering, he is bewildered by the chief’s antipathy to each other.
He begins to plot on his own.
Thus begins Calach’s story.
