'Odo, Eleanor and their trusty and talkative swords, Biter and Runnel, are plunged into a quest that will take them (as all good quests must) to unfamiliar lands, where they will fight unseen enemies and unlock unbelievable secrets in order to prevent an unbearable imposter from taking the crown. Also, they will need to keep an eye out for dragons.'
