(From the publisher):
is wonderous tale of a fabulous empire lost in history's mists. And it is more. It is an illumination of civilization's origins, a parable of poverty and power, of slaves and masters, by one of the most brilliant and evocative writers of our time.
For Prynn, a young girl who flees the village of Ellamon on the back of a dragon, Neveryóna becomes a shining symbol, just out of reach. Her search leads her to the exotic port city of Kolhari, where she walks with Gorgik the Liberator as he schemes against the Court of Eagles. It brings her to the house of Madame Keyne, a rich merchant trapped in a maze of treachery and love. And it sends her beyond the Bridge of Lost Desire to imagination's very brink.
