Aria is offered as tribute by her village to serve in the castle harem. Because of her beauty she is made the prize for the winter games. She captivates the warriors with her dances, but evidence of her mystical skills mount. She merges with the spirit of a leopard that was killed during a daring dance, shifting into its form, and wreaking havoc within the castle when she fails to control it.Mika, an archaeology student, born in Japan, finds herself fighting for her life, when she and fellow researchers are without warning, plummeted back through time, and immersed in the life and times of the very ruins they are investigating. Mika is considered an exotic beauty by the warriors and slated to become the chamber slave of the Kren Lord, but her intractable spirit and martial arts skills enable her to regain her freedom and achieve the rank of Kren Warrior within the castle. She befriends Aria and soon becomes her protector.Warriors and researchers alike, search for the source of the bizarre creatures invading the castle. A tenuous coalition is formed- the warriors wishing to secure the castle against the beasts, and the researchers wanting to prevent them from escaping onto the earth. The reader follows as Aria’s mystical skills grow, Mika wrestles with her unwanted attraction for the barbarian warlord, and the archaeologists study the mysterious crystals buried within the caverns below in hopes of finding a way home.
