France, 799 A.D.

The Northmen sacked the monastery at dawn.

They burned the village and slaughtered all who stood in their path. The relics of Saint Philbert were lost, and the island was abandoned by those who once dwelled there.

Years later, the monk Abriel - survivor of the same attack as a young boy - is sent to recover the relics and help restore the reputation and legitimacy of Saint Philbert.

What he discovers on his journey changes his life forever: the Northmen had colonized the island in the absence of the monks. They hold the key to finding the relics, but there are greater plans for Abriel.

Plans that will take him to the North to find his destiny.
