Saro and Mainor are young princes in Obestra, a city in a hidden valley deep in the heart of Africa. Like all who live in Obestra, they are lions and they are men. Within their bloodline lies a hidden gift, the gift of the goddess Obest's vision. The vision shows shadows of the future...and of a great threat coming to their lands. Can Saro and Mainor stop the coming of the The Great Iron Snake or will their kind perish forever under the shadow of progress.
