Because of the nature of his birth Jafner was looked on by the people of Farhill as a death child. Furthermore, the old woman’s prophecy given at his birth became the impetus for his being the butt of jokes and much ridicule since he ended up being the town chimney sweep.
Coinciding with Jafner’s eventual decision to journey to the Felding a mysterious and unnerving otherworldly man appeared in Farhill, referring to himself as an eelan and espoused a strange religion. The man took a special and menacing interest in Jafner.
Jafner sets out to find the Felding, but finds himself immersed in a perilous adventure that will determine the fate of realms; realms inhabited by a variety of intriguing characters and extraordinary creatures.
