The magical kingdom of Anavrin is separated from the outside world by a veil. When the queen gives birth, the king's sister goes to the sacred well to fill the Dragon Chalice with water as part of a ceremony. She overhears a man crying for help on the other side of the veil so she crosses leaving the sacred cup on her side. She takes the injured man across the veil. Later when she learns that her brother will kill the outsider, she helps him cross back to the mortal side only to learn he stole the chalice and brought it with him. The chalice bursts into light and the four stones are dispatched.
Years pass until 1275 in London Lady Ariana needs escort to rescue her brother Kenrick held captive in France. She hires a guide Ferrand de Paris who plans to sell her into slavery. However, Braedon Le Chasser rescues her. Ariana tries to persuade Braedon to take her to France where she is to deliver a satchel of information to save her sibling, but the information on the Dragon Chalice probably will mean the deaths of the siblings.
