Lady Molvik is losing the war. All she can hope for now is to flee to sanctuary. But Elementals are in her army's way. She sends Rankir, Slayer of Elementals and Zom-Ka, a Chaos Child, to deal with them. On their way, they pick up the hook-wielding Koshidi. As their friendship grows, so do the dangers they face. The Old King is after them and the Elementals themselves are becoming stronger.
