Summary (From the publisher):

Thousands of years from now, after a new Ice Age has reduced our world to frozen ruins, new civilizations and cultures arise from the Ice. But as the people of tomorrow slowly uncover the lost technology of the past, they also rediscover war, conquest, diplomacy... and betrayal.

While the mighty Rahidian-Barommian Empire expands across the globe, Josserek Derrain, undercover agent for the freedom-loving Seafolk, must find a way to save his people from the Empire's grasp. His best hope is an alliance with the Rogaviki, a wild and nomadic race whose women are rumored to cast an unbreakable spell on any man who dares to seek them out.

Between barbarians and aristocrats, spies and soldiers, the battle lines are drawn in the ultimate conflict to determine who will rule over the winter of the world.
