To seal a pact between their two kingdoms, Prince Kyrem of Devan is to be adopted as a son by the benevolent, yet otherworldly, King Auron of Vashti. But the treaty faces powerful enemies - not all of them mortal. On a distant mountain, a mad hermit wields unearthly powers, corrupting a god's magic to his own destructive ends.
On the harrowing journey to Vashti's capital, Prince Kyrem's party is attacked first by brigands, then by horrifying airborne creatures that mock the shapes of the gods themselves. The prince's life is saved by Seda, an outcast orphan girl travelling in disguise.
Before the startling conclusion, Kyrem and Seda will face the full power of sorcery gone mad - and more than one disguise will be revealed, with astonishing results.
