An uneasy peace has descended over the World Apparent. The Winter Realm and the Old Kingdom are recovering from the cataclysmic events of the Twelfth Reconquest, while in the south the Djanki and the Sharib retreat to lick their wounds from the battle at Temple Rock. To the east, the divided Empire of Temeria is nearing the end of a long civil war, in which rival Generals have fought like mad dogs to seize the long-vacant Imperial Throne.
Meanwhile, after slaying the would-be Emperor, Bail is about to find himself stranded in the Burned Earth —and the desert is not a forgiving place.
Grand Master Fulk of the Temple is in search of a new King to unite the Winter Realm, but a scheme among the Templar knights is in the making.
The pirates of the Jagged Blade have captured a ship named after the murdered queen, and on it Colken finally finds something worth fighting for.
