Description

Eleven-year-old Shan, son of Lord Weldon, grows up studying to become a knight and great swordsman like his father. When a long lost uncle appears one night and begins to abuse his father's hospitality, Shan begins to worry. Everything changes when his father mysteriously disappears and his uncle takes over the castle.
Shan hides his father's sword from his angry uncle and flees the castle with his mother. So begins Shan's quest to restore his heritage and claim to Weldon castle, taking his quest all the way to Camelot and the feet of King Arthur himself!
