The great Kha-Khan is dead; his nominated successor, the unstable seventeen-year-old Artai, awaits confirmation of his elevation; and the court broods and plots in the golden-roofed Yek capital.
Burun, the mighty warlord and power behind the Dragon Throne, intrigues and plans on behalf of his grandson. And Burun's spymaster, the offworlder known to the Yek as Suragai, has plans for his own son who he hopes will find a way off Tavaras, the planet on which they have both been marooned.
The futures and destinies of the two young men become entangled in a voyage of discovery to the unexplored lands of the west, an expedition that could make or break both of them.
