The wizard Zolotan has ideas of his own and creates beings without souls, for the sole purpose of doing his bidding. All seems right, until he joins his creations and attacks the wizardâ€™s stronghold. After a magical battle he is defeated. However, the old sorcererâ€™s unrepentant deeds cause the wizard council to chastise him severely.
By chance he survives his punishment and the elfs cross paths with the dying wizard. On his deathbed Zolotan asks the elfs to take him far away from there to heal. The unsuspecting elfs know he wonâ€™t survive, so they wait. Losing patience the wizard, in his delirium, curses them to a slow death. It is a threat the elfs never take seriously until a hundred years later when their people come down with a strange sickness they canâ€™t explain.
They are baffled by it and donâ€™t know if it will follow them if they return to their motherland. Their only glimmer of hope lies in a servant of kings who must learn to love the elfs before he will attempt to save them. But no one, elf or mankind, has ever heard of this man. Can the best healers in the land find this savior before their immortal race is gone forever?
