For fourteen years the kingdom of Agramon has suffered under the despotic rule of one evil man, a sorcerer who hides away on a death-plagued island and controls the people with an undead army. A prophecy tells of twins-children of the former king and queen-who will lead the people to freedom and spell the end of the tyranny.
Jonah and Isabelle Gomez are twins who have heard those stories but assumed they were meant to stay in their hometown and live out ordinary, mundane lives. Now, on their fourteenth birthday, they discover the prophecies refer to them; they must travel to the capital of Balaban to reclaim their rightful thrones.
With the assistance of Nathan, the greatest swordsman in the kingdom, and Alit, a fierce warrior woman from a foreign land, these teenagers risk their lives confronting vicious soldiers and ruthless kidnappers as they come face-to-face with their destinies. Even worse, the twins must deal with the incredible weight of those crowns as they begin to see just how much power, responsibility, and danger come with being the rulers of Agramon.
