The land of Tereden, treacherous even for those with the stout spirit to confront it, is home to a desperate world's dreams and fears.
The mystic island of Tereden has experienced more war than peace for as long as anyone can remember. A battleground for the foreign canine and feline peoples of Everlet and Hohleran, Tereden is also home to an indigenous race of lizards that remains neutral in the ancient conflict-but hardly dormant.
The ever-changing tides of war soon engulf Rhomand, a young canine officer who finds himself engaged in battle deep in enemy territory, fighting both for his own life and that of his childhood friend, Ayana. As the war surrounding Rhomand rages, a threat surfaces that knows no mercy and respects no race. It attracts the attention of Veia, a powerful mage and keeper of arcane arts. The foreboding signs, stretching from common battlefields to the secluded lizard cities, lead to an undertaking that envelops not only Veia and her companions, but also an unsuspecting Rhomand and Ayana.
Brimming with mystery and danger, Heart of Courage is a timeless tale of strength and courage in the midst of war, when loyalties must withstand the most difficult test of all.
