While Ravanmark buckles down for civil war with the Dark Alliance and their supporters, King Dorramon has been playing a dangerous game with Cadenda, refusing to hear their requests to honor his engagement to their princess, buying time for his forbidden love with Alannys. With international war threatening, tensions are high and fuses are short.
Alannys is traveling the country with the itinerant Singari, continuing her mission to build support for Dorramon and promote public acceptance of the Talents. After a deadly journey through Eversnow Pass, they come down on the other side of the Cloudytop Mountains into Orinthal Holding–only to find the real trials have just begun.
Join Alannys as she faces her most grueling tests yet, losing everyone and everything she ever cared about, in the continuing battle for the future of Ravanmark, the love of her life–and herself.
