The war of the letters

The year is 927th. In a dark dungeon lives a malformed pagan, educated exile who will tell this story. A story about the calling that a few lucky men are able to discover. About the choice between love and the fate to fulfill your duties. About a sacred secret, that is kept in the heart of a great nation. A story about the sacraments of the Bulgarian alphabet and it`s hidden strength.
The story begins with the youngest son of the great Bulgarian Tsar Simeon – Bayan - who studies at the Magnaura School. Forced to suffer the ridicules and the arrogance of the Byzantine aristocrats, he proudly holds the title Bulgarian prince and lives for the stolen moments in Maria`s presence. The granddaughter of the Emperor Lakapin is secretly in love with the young Bulgarian. She knows, that this is an impossible love – sooner or later her life will be exchanged for peace. She loves him despite all. Until the day when the blade of the Emperor slashes an immense stone statue. In a split second their world falls apart. On the same day Tsar Simeon dies and his son Peter ascends the throne. Weak willed, dedicated to books and thoughts about God, he has no will to prevent the ambitions of his mother, who offers to Roman Lakapin an agreement for peace, for which Maria is the stake. But nothing can stop Bayan from defending his love. And the fight for it will confront him with an astonishing secret, which can create wonders. The secret of the letters. A legend about the blood, that flows through our veins. About the battle and the will of a nation, that is ready to be itself, to be strong, to be the Bulgarian nation.
