Series: Legend of Paksenarrion
(From the author):
When Paksenarrion told the Thieves' Guild enforcer that perhaps Gird had a plan for him and the Thieves Guild, Arvid Semminson thought it was a joke. He took on leadership of the Guildhouse in Vérella and--in the previous book--at least pretended to be turning over a new leaf, in order--he told himself--to protect the thieves who had survived the winnowing. But he had old enemies there and elsewhere who found a way to sabotage him. Only by Gird's help can he survive--and those who ask for help will not only receive it, but must pay the price. Exactly what Gird's plan for Arvid might be, he doesn't know--but he will begin to find out what the price is.
King Kieri knows that Lyonya is no longer in danger of scathefire, the unquenchable fire of dragonspawn, and his elven grandmother, the Lady of the Ladysforest, has given her approval for him to marry. If he can defeat the Pargunese invaders--surely only human troops--Lyonya will be safe. But on Midwinter Night, he is lured from the royal ossuary and confronted with ancient treachery that may keep him from fulfilling his destiny.
Dorrin Duke Verrakai, meanwhile, in her role as Constable of Tsaia, faces her severest challenge yet when a member of the royal succession manifests the one talent Tsaian law will not tolerate while under her guardianship. The royal family itself harbors a source of treason no one has suspected yet.
