Far away in the realm of Mythos, an evil entity has broken free of its prison to darken the land. However, entrusted with her father's magic scroll—the only hope for the realm—young princess Dara summons six heroes from different times and places to defend her: a hardened Roman legionnaire, a swift Japanese samurai, a mighty African warrior, a fiery Amazon archer, a spirited Shaolin monk, and a guitar-playing high school student named Alex.
Now, constantly on the run from an army of Shadow Warriors, the teens must endure perilous journeys and face frightening monsters—while trying not to fight with each other—as they struggle to find the mysterious Hall of Shadows.
