[from the back of the book]
A nearly 400-year-old map hidden somewhere high up in the frozen north Aventuria that points the way to the fabled land of the Giants. A cursed mountain, a mad priest and nameless forces that must be overcome. And a young woman who has sworn to honor her family name..
The heroes accompany Filora die Süderstrand, the last daughtere of a once influential family of merchants of Riva, along the coasts of the north in the Nuiuleiken in order to find a map that will show them the way to the far Land of Giants. Together, they start from the "Gate of the Worlds" in the high mountains that separates Aventuria from the legendary eastern continent. Will the expedition will cross the border of the world or fail and perish in the merciless mountains?
