In the beginning, the Goddess danced the world into existence. Peace reigned for generations through matriarchal rule within the Minca, Dute, and Carroo tribes. But one man's lust for power destroyed this balance. Vestor assassinated his sister, Mother of the Minca tribe, and his army ravaged the Dute and Carroo tribes, thrusting a once idyllic world into war, famine, and despair.
Yet, today there is hope. Vestor's niece, Cora, has a vision: if she can convince an emissary from each tribe to rendezvous at the Heart Stone, she can overthrow her evil uncle, take her rightful place as Mother Minca, and restore harmony.
But the Dutes have disappeared deep into their mountains. There are rumors the Carroo are extinct. And, Cora must move swiftly -- lest Vestor learn that she's pregnant with the Minca heir.
