A vital message. A desperate queen. A hero in the making.
He is plainly too young and too inexperienced for the mission, but on the advice of her aged adviser Natoum, and with her husband off at war, the Queen reluctantly assigns the task of delivery to…Madrenga.
Accompanied only by a runt of a pony and a scrap of a pup, he sets off to transport the royal message to its destination. No matter what it might take.
But things are not always what they seem. Heroes are sometimes made of the strangest stuff, and love is to be found in the most unexpected places…if one doesn’t die while treading the lethal path.
