(From the publisher):
Empress Cija has taken refuge in the palace of her mother the Dictatress with her voiceless daughter Seka. But betrayal follows Cija no matter where she hides and she is abducted by her evil half-brother Smahil, whose women are instructed to tear the growing ape-child from Cija's womb.
Flight from this peril thrusts Cija into the hands of her husband Zerd, the serpent-general, as he prepares for battle with the King of the North. When Zerd comes to his Empress's bed, his jealous first wife Sedili plots a terrible revenge against her rival...
Beyong the Floating Islands, Atlan trembles at the approach of Zerd's brutal army. The enchanted land is on course for its own, self-inflicted holocaust...
