(From the publisher):
Cija was princess and prisoner, incarcerated for seventeen years under threat of an ancient curse. But when at last release comes it brings with it little joy - for Cija is to be sent by her mother, the High Priestess, as hostage to Zerd, vile half-serpent and general of the army that threatens Atlan. She is to travel with him, entice him - and destroy him...
So begins a journey that will take Cija across continents as hostage, camp follower, scullion, slave - and Empress. A journey that will take her from her tower prison to the ancient, mysterious heart of the old continent - Atlan.
