AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dirk Provin fled Prince Antonov′s court in Avacas with Tia Veran and is now in hiding in the Baenlands. Antonov, the Lion of Senet, determines to bring Dirk back with a series of atrocities so dreadful, Dirk is unable to ignore them.

'Antonov′s son, Kirsh, has married Princess Alenor of Dhevyn, but he is still obsessed with the beautiful young acrobat Marqel, who may yet cost him his life. Alenor is discovering that married life is not quite what she imagined, and tries to concentrate on her responsibilities as Queen of Dhevyn. Instead, she is inexorably drawn into a web of deceit and intrigue.

'It is only in the ruins of Omaxin that Dirk has any hope of uncovering the truth of the Age of Shadows. But the truth he discovers is not at all what he bargained for...'
