|Plot Summary of Once a Hero|
Four hundred years ago, legendary warrior Neal Roclawsi fought along side his elven friend Arrundel in a crusade to rid the world of a race of evil and tyrannical creatures. Now, in an attempt to undo an oath that Neal made long before his demise, and is the only one who can break it, Arrundel's Granddaughter Genavera suggest the unthinkable: Raising Neal from the dead. However, a hero of the past may not be anything she expects, or the answer to her problems of the present. At least in the way that she originally thought.
