The ancient and acclaimed land of Ethryn is dying from
pervasive drought, and while the king searches to find
water, a mighty tower is uncovered in the desert. King Kael
hopes the scroll found near the altar will tell of water
sources, but when he touches the gemstone set in the altar,
he falls into a coma that transports him back five thousand
years where he is a slave building the tower.
Sha’kath, the wizard who oversaw the building of the tower
all those centuries ago, had cast a spell that brings sand
bubbling up from the ground so the workers can make bricks
and complete the tower’s construction.
In the past, the king, whose is a young villager named Lael,
is pursued relentlessly by God, given visions and
declarations that he has been chosen to be a deliverer and a
prophet , but Lael keeps fleeing. Then, when the tower is
completed, heaven appoints him as deliverer, and he and his
companions escape and head to their villages. God directs
Lael to the sacred site and makes him the Keeper, then
reveals his great power as he brings down judgment upon the
world, confusing languages and scattering all in rebellion
and defiance. Lael is shown the beginnings of Ethryn—a
fertile and prosperous land that will become a great kingdom
—and then he returns home to his family, where he fully
embraces his destiny and delivers those who will listen. God
then destroys his village with fire, but Lael leads his
contingent to the sacred site and a new beginning.
At the end of his life, Lael—who has watched Ethryn grow and
prosper and who has been a gifted healer—returns to the
tower to place his poem in the chest and put the gemstone on
the altar. Before he takes his last breath, he turns and
sees a girl—who is Ra’daf of the future—and when he dies,
King Kael in the future wakes from his long sleep. Upon
awakening he finds Ra’daf nearly dead by his bed—for the
vizier had tried to stop her from waking the king with the
amaranth in the vase. Lael heals her, and the vizier flees,
unable to locate his secret chamber, but intent on
discovering the locations of all seven sites and destroying
them all. Kael, upon reviving, now knows where the site is
buried under sand and takes his people there, where he again
is set up as Keeper, and now, with heaven’s blessing, water
erupts from the ground and ends the drought.
