(From the publisher):
Four days before Hostenfest, the young Prince Gaborn Val Orden enters the city of Bannisferre incognito. He is expected to marry the Crown Princess, Iome, to cement their lands alliance, but soon events overtake such plans.
Raj Ahten, Wolf Lord of the Southern Lands, is invading the Northern kingdoms of Rofehaven to increase his power bas as a prelude to facing the barbarian hordes of Inkarra. To the northerners there seems little difference between the two enemies. Before there is time for old alliances to be reforged - or for a new alliances to be born - Raj Ahten has taken an entire kingdom and is moving northward... thanks to the "endowments" of wit, brawn and glamour he has drawn vampire-lile, from the conquered masses.
Gaborn and Iome are amongst those who continue to oppose Raj Ahten's seemingly unstoppable conquest as a world goes to war and the powers of the Earth King are woken...
