Faraday, daughter of Earl Isend of Skarabost and his wife, Lady Merlion, is betrothed to Duke Borneheld Warlord of Achar and heir to King Priam. Faraday doesnot want Borneheld but his half- brother, Axis, BattleAxe of the Axe-Wielders whom Borneheld hates and loathes like no other. Faraday dreams of Axis yet she must keep her pledge to Borneheld to preserve Axis's life no matter what she feels for Axis. The Prophecy of the Destroyer foretells of events where the lands of Achar must unite all of it's inhabitants Acharites, Icarii, and the Avar under the Starman against Gorgrael's might. Faraday meets Jack the pig keeper during her travels who is also a Sentinel of the Prophecy. Jack asks Faraday to touch a tree as a test when she does is stunned by what the tree shows her and runs away from Jack. Faraday becomes known as Tree Friend who has a large task in front of her. Three more Sentinels appear to Faraday telling her she must marry Borneheld to save Axis's life no mattter what. Many lives are held in the balance of the Prophecy and many more yet to be. Can Faraday become who she needs to be? Will Borneheld's jealousy of Axis be thwarted? Can Axis get past the lies of the Seneschal told him? Will the Avar and the Icarii come to the aid of Starman? Where is the fifth Sentinel? Your answers await you in BattleAxe.
