In a land ruled by knights, where martial strength is tamed by a code of honour and duty, the line between protection and oppression is a subtle one. When a sickly prince leaves the succession in doubt, ambitious men gather in the shadows ready to take advantage.
Edouard and Mariette are caught in a twisted world where the lines between treachery, honour and love are hopelessly blurred.
