Two hundred years ago, a dark mage named the Red Merlin cast a curse on the Middle Kingdom: that every crown prince born to the royal family would die at the age of twenty one. Protected by another Merlin’s sacrifice, for two hundred years, the royal family has had only daughters. Until the middle of one fateful night.

When the protective spell finally runs out, the royal family is left with only this: a Crown Prince, doomed to die, a legend, and an enchanted sword in a stone.
