"Only the strength of the heart can govern one’s fate.”
Tibet 1285. After a reluctant but ultimately successful quest to save her childhood home from her cruel uncle, Nordun is ready to forgive him for his sins, despite knowing he murdered her mother long ago. But her family is set on revenge— they’ve ordered Karma, the man Nordun is falling for, to hunt her uncle down and kill him.
Desperate to avoid more bloodshed, and determined to stand by her Buddhist beliefs, Nordun joins Karma on his journey under the false pretense of going on a pilgrimage to Lhasa, the place her uncle is hiding.
As they cross raging rivers, traverse vast grasslands, and conquer the mighty mountain ranges of the Cho-La, Nordun realizes the man she loves is indeed a kindred spirit—but he is also a merciless warrior, who believes compassion has no place in a family blood feud.
When faced with the inevitable, will Nordun risk losing her love, and her life, to save the man who killed her mother?
We follow Nordun on her crusade across the rooftop of the world, to the lands of Gods, where the fickle fate of men is in the hands of the ones who reign through force and fear, and the unshakable faith of a woman in the innate goodness of humankind proves to be the very thing that can set a man free.
