From publisher blurb:
Victory Elm, the glorious tree giving its name to the surrounding village, is dying, and its affliction has spread to the villagers. The once welcoming village takes its name from the sole tree to withstand an invading giantish army. The Victory Elm served as a rallying point for the beleaguered humans fighting the giants who broke the enemies amid heavy fighting around the tree. After the battle, many of the survivors remained at Victory Elm and founded the village of the same name in memory of their victory and fallen companions.
The villagers attribute the tree’s recent affliction to an infestation of pernicious termites. To make matters worse the aged druid who tends the tree has also fallen ill. The village’s plan to grow another elm from the Victory Elm’s seeds failed before it could even be begun when the collected seeds mysteriously disappeared. Perhaps timed with the tree’s imminent demise, and unknown to the majority of the village, a heavily scarred giant has received visions from one of his ancestors telling him it is time to strike and destroy the village once and for all. Victory Elm is a village beset by threats from both within and without.
