From the book:
This book develops the World of Prime. A world where Magic is real and wonderful or terrifying, depending on who is using and what they’re using it for. The feudal hierarchy is endowed with supernatural powers that defy belief. And it needs those powers. Because just over the border of
civilized lands is the Wild, where unthinkable monsters lurk, ready to pounce on any sign of weakness.
Not that there aren’t enough monsters inside the Kingdom of the Rock, where Good and Evil live side by side in the King’s Court, and thugs with the distinction of rank swagger and take what they want.
