A war with the East is imminent. In the North, King Egil of Holgur orders his oldest son to travel West to Tovia, choose a bride, and wed. Never intending to marry, Aksel selects one who appears dull and uncomplicated, a silent, obedient bride.

Can they realize they share common goals, and discover that two opposite individuals have the ability to be stronger together and create an empire to rival all others, past and present?
