For one hundred and one years the V'ornn have ruled over the planet Kundala. And for one hundred and one years the legendary, all-powerful Pearl has been lost. Ever since the V'ornn invasion the oppressed Kundalan have been dwindling in strength. Their religion is dying, their magic fading and their goddess all but forgotten. Only the fabled and long-awaited Dar Sala-at can rediscover the Pearl and save Kundalan and V'ornn alike from extinction. But the newly-incarnated hero of ancient prophecy must fight inner turmoil as well as battling the mysterious and dangerous rulers of the V'ornn, the technologically advainced Gyrgon.
