Hauberin, ruler of a Faerie princedom, has never lived an easy life. A young man in an ageless court, and (most shamefully) part human, he has been the target of plots from the day he first ascended his throne. But the curse of a dying foe proves more dangerous than any plot. Hauberin's only chance for survival is to find the key to ending the curse: his mother's father's name.
To that end Hauberin must search the world from which his mortal mother came, a world where Cold Iron promises hot death to anyone of Faerie, and even the hint of magic can lead to a fiery end.
Caught up in struggles not his own, harried by his curse, Hauberin wonders if this alien Realm will be his doom, if the truth behind that strange and ancient name he seeks will indeed set him free --- by destroying him utterly.
