Summary (From the author):

Daneion Pelos (also known as Wallis, the name given him by Olympias, mother of Alexander the Great) meets and befriends Olympias. He becomes her physician, advisor and companion.

When Olympias is betrothed to Philip II, Basileos of the Macedonians, and when Wallis' grandmother Yiayia, dies, he takes the first step of the journey toward his destiny. He leaves his home in Athens to travel wilderness roads, unaware that he is being led by unseen guardians.

In the village of Amber, north of the Danube River, Wallis meets a tribe of people with mysterious powers. These not-so-simple villagers who call themselves The People of the Trees, adopt orphans from various Keltic tribes and teach them their skills. They enlist Wallis' aid in an ancient plot involving entire continents. He learns to fear them and their powers, and finally to accept them.

The People lead him into encounters that challenge the fabric of his existence. There is no turning back. No longer an innocent, he must decide. Will he accept his new world, learn and grow? Will he live on without arÍte? Without honor?
