A new and fearful force has arisen in the Western Isles. The Mantis King and his invincible army of green warrior women have overwhelmed the kingdom. Conjured up from the world of insects, the green women work in perfect coordination, harmony, and selflessness. As individual warriors, they are formidable, but when they fight together as a unit, none can stand against them.
They begin to build ships and weapons to launch an attack on the blessed land of Thulia, across the sea.
Leif and Nuala, on their honeymoon, are separated in a terrible storm, Leif ending up in the midst of the Western Isles, and Nuala in the land of the Frost Giants. They are tasked with not only finding each other, but with finding a way to defeat the Mantis King.
