Boy - Shepherd - Guardian.
This is a myth about change.
Olwud’s simple life is turned upside down the day he finds a giant footprint. Outcast by his father, he sets off with his sheepdog and flock on a quest to find the mysterious Guardian.
But when he stumbles on a magical pool, he realises he can help a tribe troubled by plague and marauding giants. On the brink of his secret destiny, he also learns of a dark army landing on Opple Isle intent on stealing the Ancestor's legendary artefacts.
Troubled times have fallen on Olwud and his homeland. Can he learn how to control the magic waking within, like Osmo, the ancient hero? Perhaps if he could find the Guardian...
