This is the second of a fantastic series by Christopher Hopper, author of The White Lion Chronicles, and co-author of The Berinfell Prophecies.
In the beginning of The Lion Vrie, Dionia’s armies are scattered and few. The kings of Dionia have been lost. The dead are limitless. And the Fallen are attacking their own race, without a single moment of hesitation. This is also bad because those that are not Fallen and are in disarray are not expecting their own race to turn on them. However, a remnant of Dionia’s people have escaped to Mount Dakka, a mountain peak in the north. Luik, son of Lair, makes a slow recovery. Later, before a long and cold inussle, or winter, Luik travels to find Anorra; fore she hasn’t been seen for many tens of days. Once again, he returns nearly dead, alive only from the courtesy of the Most High. And then, the snow, wind, and cold hit Mount Dakka. But against expectations, spirits remain high in the Mountain, and shouts of laughter ring through the streets. After the cold is gone, Luik sets to work fortifying Mount Dakka, fore he is sure that Morgui will attack it.
And then, Luik travels to the city of Ot. There, he is anointed High King of Dionia, and when he returns to Mount Dakka, he crowns the kings of the lands of Dionia. Next, Luik discovers the Order of the White Lion, or the Lion Vrie. But will the new Kings and the new Lion Vrie be enough to defeat the evil and trickery of Morgui?
