In the Green Isles, the summer magic is waning. Snake ships pillage the coastal towns and
the evil Icelord encases the verdant lands in a permanent frost. A mysterious old wizard
prepares to mount one last defense of the Isles, hurrying to instruct his inexperienced
apprentice in the art of shape-changing. In a desperate race to awaken the Summerlord,
the newfound mage gathers a few remaining allies, including a seemingly-ordinary young
woman and her protective adoptive family. Mercilessly pursued by the Icelord's army of
stormkin, they flee north to the seat of the Summerlord's power.
But the revelation of a family betrayal leads to new treachery—and time is running short for the Summerborn.
