It’s time to kill the king.
The city of Lund is under siege. The Bergkonge has sent an army of dark elves and frost giants to put an end to the resistance against his rule once and for all. In Lund the combined powers of the humans, dwarves, light elves, and the guardians of the arm rings of Yngvar wait to face those of the mountain king. For them, destroying the Bergkonge is not a matter of pride or a desire for victory, it is all about survival. Not only for Midgard, but all of the nine realms.
Trapped in the dreamworld by the Bergkonge, the children of the heroes of the Danelands struggle to find a way to escape. Their mission to unlock the path to the Bergkonge’s lair complete, they long to return home to help fight in the final battle.
As the frost giants attack Lund, it seems as though the guardians of the arm rings of Yngvar will hold the city on their own, but the queen of the dark elves has yet to attack, and the Bergkonge has yet to call his most deadly warriors to the battlefield.
More than lives are on the line as the alliance between those in Lund, held together by the heroes of the Danelands, makes its one and only stand against the darkness of the mountain king.
Can the heroes of the Danelands triumph over the forces of darkness once more, or are the nine realms doomed to cower for eternity under the shadow of the Bergkonge?
