The Fox is the continuation of the story of the fictional protagonist Inda.
As the second son of the Prince and Princess of Choraed Elgaer, Inda was fated to protect the realm his older brother would inherit. Forced to flee his homeland before his thirteenth birthday, he finds himself on the perilous decks of a pirate ship, forcing himself never to think of all he has lost. But his military skills and inborn natural leadership ability cannot be erased, and four years later, Inda has become head of his own mercenary marine company, with a reputation for protecting merchant vessels against the marauding bands of pirates that plunder the waters.
Meanwhile, after the untimely death of Inda’s brother, his parents are desperately searching for their second son—for Inda is now the heir to Choraed Elgaer.
