2015 год. Decades have passed since the heroic knight Tristan and the famed wizard Vithric defeated the evil Nethergrim and his minions. Everyone in Moorvale knows the legend; songs are sung and festivals held in their heroes' honor. Yet now something dark has crept over the village. First animals disappear. Then something worse: children disappear. The whispers start quietly yet soon build to a shout: The Nethergrim has returned! Edmund knows little of the Nethergrim. He just wants to study magic---for which his father berates him. When Edmund's little brother disappears, though, Edmund and his best friends run away to battle an evil whose strength and power none of them can imagine.
