While the Great Beasts lived as spirit animals, there came to be a great betrayal. The Greencloaks turned on animals and began slaughtering those bound to them through the sacred ties. Abeke, Meilin, Rollan and Conor turned on Uraza, Jhi, Essix, and Briggan, causing the ultimate demise of the legendary Four Fallen. The rest of the Great Beasts were killed by their own summoners. Tellun, Jhi and Ninani were the last ones standing. In their last moments, Tellun promised the return of all. Since then, peace has not been seen. Children kill the animals they summon almost instantly. Erdas has very few who keep a hold on the powerful bond, but they need heroes. Someone who can mend the damage from the inside. Someone who can avenge those who were lost. The Evil Order of Greencloaks are rising again, and the hunt for spirit animals is not yet over. The Great Beasts have all returned now to stop this madness before Erdas loses the gift of the Bond forever. The only problem is . . . can they succeed in time? Before the Evertree takes away the gift of the Bond?
