Do you love tales of intrigue in glorious princely courts, of dragons, elves, and other fantastical creatures, of great battles and unassuming heroes bravely facing the invincible? Then risk a look at the fantastic worlds of bestselling author Bernhard Hennen, who combines magical and earthly in an unusual way.

Princess Alathaia lives a dream on Langollion. Each of her subjects should have the opportunity to realize themselves and seek what fulfills their lives and makes them happy.

A dream that fuels the longings of the serfs in feudal Albenmark and causes discontent among the rulers. Therefore, a war of intrigues and assassins has been raging in the shadows for a long time.

Finally, the elf queen sends Emerelle, her most talented assassin, to the court of Langollion. And it turns out: princes can be killed, but do dreams die because of that?

Unusual times beget unusual alliances, and yet it seems inevitable that the future of Albenmark will be fought out on the battlefield. The armies are gearing up for battle to decide on the Walstatt whether the world will belong to the Dreamers or the autocratic queen.
