A Wizard Called Rye

Kouzelník Žito

Apolena the healer finds an abandoned newborn in a field of rye. She takes him home and gives him the name Rye. Rye grows up into a young lad with a great passion for justice and righteousness, therefore refusing to serve with the king as a tax collector and ending up in the stables instead. Here he meets the king's ward, Princess Adélka. But aside from Adélka, the demon girl Filištína also takes a liking to Rye, deciding to get him for herself at all costs. She offers Rye wealth and power, but of course he would not be acquiring it in an honest manner. Rye understands that if he were to agree to her offer, he would end up in hell, thus he rejects Filištína.
