Your nickname is the White Youth. You were born a bogatyr, a powerful one. So what? The usual thing. You are not the first, you are not the last. At ten, you hit a crow right in the eye, and punch a bear in the ear. It remains only to visit the Forge and acquire heroic armor. Life is beautiful, ahead are battles and feats. And it was necessary for one of the envious to mention aloud the name of your brother, whom you don’t know about, and the family doesn’t even want to talk about! From this moment on, your life is shattered, and the pieces fly into the Abyss of Death, to the three iron cradles. Your fiancée is kidnapped by a giant from the Underworld, your sister is kidnapped by the giant’s younger brother, and you are offered the sister of the kidnappers as a wife – more of a monster than a woman. After all, the family saga, as the wise, sighted blind man Saryn-toyon says, is much more dangerous and meaner than any legends about exploits.
