(From the publisher):
DEBT OF HONOR, OATH OF BLOOD
Since early childhood, Jofre has honored the ways of the Brotherhood. Now the illustrious order of bodyguards and assassins has cast him out in disgrace - cruelly condemning the young Shadow to wander a treacherous world alone. But in the Stinkport, safe haven for the vilest of star-traveling scum, Jofre's true destiny is revealed. For here he is bound by blood-oath to the gentle, reptilian knowledge-seeker Zurzal on a perilous quest to penetrate the mysteries of time - a miraculous journey that will carry them through war and revolution on far planets and deep into the Shattered Lands... and to the beautiful and mysterious Shadow-sister whose own sworn mission could doom them all.
