(From the publisher):
The deep currents of intrigue are moving toward the surface of life on the River. Pamra Don has become the visionary leader of a great pilgrimage, carrying the discontent of Northshore to lay at the feet of the Protector of Man. But the Thraish have at last taken note of her, and her crusade. Encouraged by certain factions in the chancery, they plot to take her captive.
Thrasne and Medoor Babji of the Noor have left Northshore and their pasts behind, intending to take the Gift across the River to Southshore. But the River is hundreds of miles wide, and their journey will be long and perilous. They seek a land free of Thraish and the influence of the Towers, but they will find more than that. And behind the Teeth of the North, Tharius Don is drawing together the threads of his long plotting. The Day will come soon, and with it freedom for the people of Northshore.
