Tis the dawn of a New Age and eighty thousand turnings of the great wheel of the seasons have passed since the forgotten Ice Times and all have remained quite ere now. But a great darkness has emerged far to the north and lies over the whole of Phantasodyssea threatening a grim thralldom to all that breathes, yet there is one last hope, and that hope lies in Tulwryn the Warrior, but he himself is over shadowed by a heavy burden difficult to bear.

An ancient and archaic prophecy foretells that a stranger from the south, the Bloodsword, shall assume the throne of the House of Rexor and unite the warring northern tribes against Darkoth, the evil Frost Dragon, and his minions, the Frost Giants.

More than sixty winters past, Darkoth executes his plan and births a minion, in the form of the Volva, an evil sorceress, to the clan of Heidmar with the hope of thwarting the prophecy of the Bloodsword.

This is the first novel of the epic saga of the fantastic odyssey of Tulwryn Bloodsword, the Warrior. Embark with him on a fantastic odyssey as he travels through Phantasodyssea, a world filled with magic and heroic adventure.
