The war is over before it fully began and peace has settled across the northlands. The balance has shifted from destruction to growth. From hate to love. With a wedding in Alto's future, the time to relax and rejoice has come at last. Relaxation, however, breeds boredom for men trained to fight.
A short trip to slake the thirst for adventure takes Alto, Patrina, and Namitus to the deserted tropical isle of Britanly. Ignoring the warnings of sailors, they hope to find out what happened to the once thriving population.
Abandoned on the island, they soon learn that the fate of the people of Britanly is beyond their wildest imaginings. The companions must struggle to survive the hostile island and hope that help will arrive before they stuffer the same fate as those who came before them.
