The time is the mysterious twiligt age between the fall of Rome and the long night of the Dark Ages. The place is primitive Britain, where a magic power with roots in the dimmest reaches of the past makes its final stand against the forces of bloody barbarism and ravaging conquest. It is then and there that Harkfast, last of the great druid priests, must find the youth destined to be King of the Celts and mold him with magic and with might into the hero foretold by prophecy and threatened by every danger in a world sliding in to the abyss
