Prince Ethan is captured, enslaved, and tortured by an enemy warlord. He reaches the breaking point, then ends up in the hands of the warlord's son. Rather than mistreat his new acquisition, Samet treats him kindly and begins the slow process of helping him heal. As Ethan recovers, he and Samet befriend each other enough that Samet eventually trusts Ethan with his secret. Rather than aiding his father, Samet is the one trying to stop the warlord's real plan to set himself up as tyrant over the entire land.

To save the world, the two will even brave the dangers of hell itself.
