The cabin holds a darker music that will soon lure Jorgen to succumb to its power.
Canticle of DawnMany years after the rule of Minna in the Canticle Kingdom within the music box, the current queen longs to be as beautiful as her predecessors. Desperate for any magic that might help her attain beauty, a stranger offers the queen hope, but may prove to harbor darker secrets of his own.
Canticle of TwilightKarsten and the knights of the Canticle Kingdom have kept vigil for Jorgen’s return for many years, either as the sorcerer Thantos or any other guise, but Jorgen has already infiltrated the castle and plots a new kind of revenge upon the kingdom. With a new queen in peril, and the kingdom soon split, the knights face greater evils than ever before and can only hope that they succeed and that one day the kingdom faces a better future.
