Following King’s Dragon and Prince of Dogs, one of the most exhilarating and compelling epic fantasies of recent years continues.
An uncertain and uneasy peace has fallen on the kingdom of Wendar, but at the court of King Henry the various factions jockey relentlessly and ruthlessly for position. It seems that the king’s favour has fallen upon Prince Sanglant, his bastard son, and that he is to be the chosen heir.
But Sanglant is too troubled by the recent past to seek that crown. He needs time to recover and, most of all, he needs Lianth, the woman who saved him from his terrible captivity — even though such a liason must incur his father’s impacable wrath.
For her part, Liath knows that her future lies with Sanglant. She has also learned that her mother, a powerful practitioner of the banned sorcerous arts, is not dead, as she always thought, but is seeking her — to school her in the same arts.
