When the king of Enlad is murdered and his sacred sword stolen, all signs point to the young prince Arren who is journeying to find the root of the world's illness. Enlad encounters the Archmage Ged--now known as Haikata--and the two journey into a world of darkness found both on distant shores and in their own hearts..
