Adrian and Rohanna are mysteriously drawn from our world to Anglo-Saxon Mercia, over a thousand years back in time. Here they meet new friends, and get into danger. Adrian is to fight Ethón, a terrible beast that brings disaster to the land, but will he succeed in freeing Mercia from a century of evil forces?

But Ethón is not the only challenge that Adrian must overcome, and when it is time to go back to our world, Rohanna reveals a secret and doesn’t want to return.
