For five years, the young Englishman Edward Exeter has tried to escape the magnetic pull of a Great Game that has designated him its most important player. But war and bloodthirsty intrigues rage on both sides of magical portals. Exeter can resist his destiny no longer, and accepts the burdensome mantle of Liberator that has been thrust upon his shoulders; a decision that has turned old friends into foes, old enemies into acolytes, and has been greeted by murderous plots and heartless betrayals spawned in secret places and at glittering formal affairs.
But this is not the Edward Exeter who came naked into this strange, hidden realm just a few short years ago. For he has lived the Game and learned it well. And he intends to play it boldly to its shocking, worlds-shattering conclusion.
