The slumbering camp exploded into chaos as eerie spine- shivering cries ripped the night asunder. Terrified, the boy jerked upright, heart thundering in his ears as his gaze skittered about wildly. Disoriented at being yanked from a sound sleep, the prince clambered to his feet, calling fearfully for his mother. There was no answer.

As the young elven prince, Steavil, watches in horror, his mother is slain by the evil Norfulk Roderickson. Fleeing for his life, he strikes his head and is knocked unconscious.

Cut off from everything and everyone, Steavil's life takes a drastic shift. He is found by the king of a neighboring realm and raised, as Stefan, to be the page of its prince, Roland. Although he remembers nothing before the rescue, Stefan knows something is missing in his life, and he longs for the freedom he once knew.

When Roland convinces the king to let them travel on a routine trading expedition and their raft is attacked and burned, Stefan experiences flashes of disquieting déjà vu as the events swirl about him.

When Prince Roland resolves to return home alone, Stefan watches from the trees as the prince is captured by the legendary elves. Will Stefan be able to rescue the prince? Will he remember his own past?
