A douze ans, Amos Daragon devient le premier élu de la nouvelle génération des porteurs de masques. La mission de ce culte instauré par la Dame blanche est de rétablir l'équilibre du monde, menacé par la guerre sans merci que se livrent les dieux du bien et du mal.

I will surely recommend it to young readers though, because Amos is an interesting character :)
