A new power will rise...
Once, the kingdom of Ythan was great and prosperous.
But then, a Princess, the sole heir to the kingdom, disappeared.
As time passed many lost hope that their Lady Eloria could or would return. The Golden Age crumbled in despair.
Now, she has faded into legend. Ythan has fallen to the hands of the corrupt and the greedy. With its glory long gone, Ythan has become a place of terror and evil.
Under the tyrannical reign of the Regent, every corner of this great land is suffering.
But amidst the darkness of the realm, there is a glimmer of hope.
Could the princess be found? Could order and peace be restored?
But who dared to find her?
The answer: Krispin Tommasson, an apprentice toymaker. He and his fellow companions are Ythan's only chance salvation.
Together, they must quest to discover the whereabouts of the mythical Princess - or Ythan may perish forever...
Ancient Dreams is an enthralling fantasy epic, the first of The Wells of Ythan series.
