Even for a Giant, Gronti is rather large, so the other children tease him mercilessly. Every night while Gronti sleeps, a flaming mist arises from the ground, seeking its vessel to inhabit and control. One fateful night, Gronti can resist the evil mist no longer. The fiery fog enters through Grontis mouth and settles in his body, fueling its sinister plans and making Grontis revenge a reality. Now that the destructive presence dwells inside Gronti, he becomes the bully. His first order of business is to rid the land of Menzoo of its current ruler, King Stanley, and usurp the throne. Once this vile deed is done, King Gronti amasses an army of misfits that he calls his black knights. He orders them to travel to the Nipsa Mountains and bring him the loathsome trolls. They will exact revenge on the people of Menzoo for him. Meanwhile, Dorong, a young man with a special purpose, has been chosen by Benta the Magus, to save Menzoo from their vile new king. Although hesitant, Dorong embraces his responsibility and sets out on his quest to destroy King Gronti. He embarks on his journey alone, but along the way he encounters several interesting creatures-Yoko, the newt who was once a girl, the magical Habbub, Capn Toby and his crew, and a slew of other beings. Dorongs guardian, Gabo, joins him at the Sea of Phlin. Will Dorong, The Harbinger, defeat King Gronti and save the land of Menzoo?
