Summary and Preview
In the land of Elphida, the Knights of the Zehn are warriors who are admired, fight for the people, and protect the queen. Pelna is a bounty hunter and the daughter of the late Acheron Kaldios, the former commander of the Knights of Zehn. Seven years ago, during a victory parade, he was assassinated when he walked toward the young Pelna. She blames herself for her father’s death and gave up on her dream of becoming one of the knights.
Pelna learns about the recruitment for the Knights of Zehn and is dragged there by a teenage boy named Levon. As the two see hundreds of applicants, Pelna and Levon learn that the first test is to deliver a book to the Alef Lakun castle. By coincidence, the book falls into their hands and with hundreds of ambitious people after the book, they must safely make their way towards the castle. [vyc]
