For as long as anyone can remember, Ember Dargon has held the crown of the Fifth kingdom in her hands. And for as long as anyone cared, Dream has hunted it. With the threat of Dream and the date of Renewing Bonds creeping ever closer, Ember hires four men to hunt down the infamous Dream. Four strangers, four very different stories, four secrets, are tasked to capture Dream before the last day of the last month of the year. If they fail? Well that just isn't an option. With vague memories of a war no one remembers, an encounter with a man in green in the woods, hunter George Founders is left with more questions than answers.
