Ogres are bigger than you.
Ogres are stronger than you.
Ogres rule the world.

But when the headman’s son, Torquell, dares lift his hand against the landlord’s son, he sets in motion a chain of events which let him learn about the dark sciences that ensured his masters’ domination, the monstrous lies behind everything he knows, and the even worse truths about the Ogres, and the people they rule.
