A race in bondage. A reluctant choice to seal their future.
Demetrius has always known life as a prince of the Capricorn Kingdom of Barazar. Until he stumbles upon a startling, long-kept family secret that shatters his entire world. Confused and betrayed, he flees into exile, leaving behind all that he has ever known.
However, a mysterious all-powerful deity calls him back to Barazar with an unthinkable task: free the enslaved horses and lead them to their long-forgotten ancestral homeland, Aethon. The last thing Demetrius wants is to face the capricorns, but the sufferings of his true family could not be ignored. His decision will sweep him on a perilous journey. One of battles between wills and forces, deadly creatures, divine plagues, and, above all, hope.
