Alrak, a brutal barbarian king invades Catawissa. To satisfy his greed for power and wealth, he enslaves the people, confiscates their land and extracts high levies that drive them into poverty and despair. To ensure his control, the King’s warlords are given positions of power over vast estates providing little opportunity for the people to rebel. Charles and Louise Tillsbury and their son Jonathan who were once prospers farmers have become serfs on their own land where they manage to eke out a living from what little the king does not take. But the King has ambitions to conquer new lands. To pay for the King’s new levies, Jonathan is forced to travel to the city to find work as an apprentice. On his journey, Jonathan discovers an Urn that has evil as well as wonderful powers. It is the evil of the Urn that adds to the despair and captures Jonathan and separates him from his family and his childhood sweetheart, Elizabeth. But it is also the fortunes of the Urn that provide the creative opportunity that brings Jonathan and his family together again. Struggling for his freedom, it takes all of Jonathan’s imagination and cunning to use the Urn to receive a gift that the Urn has no power to give. This gift not only changed the lives of Jonathan and his parents, but also that of the King and the people of Catawissa.
