Niobe has discovered a monastery hidden within the heart of the Ugoma Jungle. Under the tutelage of Bragnar, a wise but aging Macgrom (Dwarf), the young warrior princess has found an order of Galemren (Wild Elf) boys learning to become men.
Feeling out of place, she finds comfort in an unlikely friend, a Sin-Grachukk (Half Orc) boy who has been accused of murdering one of the tribe.
Will Niobe discover the truth in time to save her new companion from certain execution? Or will her feelings get in the way?
