In all corners of the world men whisper about the legends of Iski Flare filling their mundane lives with tales of his bravery. Village children pretend to have his adventurous nature and skills with the axe, while women dream of his kindness and strength. This is a new tale, one you haven’t heard, the story of where it all began.
All Iski wants is to prove to the woman he loves that he can be the man she needs him to be. They are offered refuge in a cottage in the woods beyond the boundaries of their cursed village but the old woman is not what she seems. Accepting her help may cost him more than he is willing to give.
This is the tale of how the boy became the man. The man that would become the Legend, Iski Flare.
