Jeddok finds these words written by his father on a map leading to the fabled land of Grhytnod. Haunted by his father's disappearance, Jeddok and his two best friends embark on a quest to find him. But they find more than they bargained for when they discover war is brewing against The Not, an evil entity which consumes living souls.
When the peace pact between the Varruns and the Darkrruns - the soulless army of The Not - is broken, two exiled kings form their own pact to save the lands and people they love with the sword-making skills of Jeddok's father and faith in Theoas, The Maker they've never seen....
Mounted on six-legged oologs, attacked by pesky hootchkas, and making peculiar friends and dangerous enemies along the way, will Jeddok and his friends find Grhytnod in time - and a weapon powerful enough to destroy the darkness before it destroys their homeland?
