Synopsis

500 years after the banishment of wizards, the kingdom of Valheigh faces the unthinkable: the rediscovery of wizardry and the return of the legendary evil known as the Jinn.

Prince Rune Beowald returns to Valheigh to claim the throne but runs into an old adversary: Avery (now going by the name Arklomene), the man who Rune blames for his mother’s death.

Seeking revenge against Rune for the actions of his father, Arklomene unleashes the most horrific curse of Jinn legend: Rune must kill the woman he loves or die himself at her hands.
