170 years ago the realm of Nazroth was in chaos. A time of vicious civil war and sorcery that tore the idyllic world into 12 kingdoms.
The most respected and powerful kingdom is that of Zaldah, whose King Xalvador has endeavoured to keep harmony in the face of neighbouring kingdoms petty fighting. The beasts of The Dark Kingdom and the Dragons have not been seen for generations and there has been relative peace in the land.
But 9 months ago the screams of dragons once again filled the skies and King Xalvador’s western castle was bombarded with unprovoked attacks. To restore peace and ensure the safety of his people the King ordered 12 of his best Knights to slay the beast. The Royal Warriors chased the dragon away from Zaldah, a fight of teeth and blade, fire and steel. As each battle claims another life, the Knights feel a darkness growing in the land…
Nazroth is changing again…
The film is priming for a premiere on August 2 in Leicester Square in tandem with the release of the first book in the Order Of Kings series.
