A place where the Gifts of the Spirit and angels struggle against sorcery and demons and the fate every soul hangs in the balance. Where Viking Forsamling and aboriginal Skaerslinger are trapped by ice and stone in a war they cannot flee in a land of steam and the undead.

They are to be escorted to Saint Martin's School by Brother Finn, a disgraced monk, and his dog, Bergamot, who's enemies desire their death. Can Brother Finn protect this precious group of children as they take their perilous journey through the fearsome pinery and across deadly waters where nature itself desires their destruction.
