At the dawn of Human civilization, Mankind was pushing the world of Faerie aside. Faced with the inevitable end, Five Elvin Kings created the stones of power. Vessels of life energy, the stones created the Realm and the races of Faerie left Earth. Now, 10,000 years later the Realm is dying. In the hope of restoring his world and saving its people, one Elvin prince, son of late King Aric, tries to use his familyís forgotten and neglected stone of power and is overcome with its desire to gather the other stones. Aldreas does what he thinks is right to restore a balance he is only slowly becoming aware of at a terrible cost in lives he canít control.
Only the Earth Stone has the power to stop Aldreasí ultimate goal, reemergence of Earth and Realm. An act that promises to destroy both worlds. But it will need an avatar in the Realm, and only an Elvin myth called a Human will be able to use its power.

However, heís about to find out that myths arenít what he thought they were and the heroes heís read about didnít have a choice and neither does he.
