Brimming with passion and adventure, Greg Keyes's epic saga of a
royal family's fall from power through treachery and dark magic,
set amid the return of ancient evils whose malevolence threatens to
annihilate humanity, bids fair to become a classic of its kind.
Now, in the eagerly awaited third installment, Keyes draws the
threads of his tapestry ever tighter, illuminating old mysteries
and introducing new ones as events build toward a shattering
The legendary Briar King has awakened, spreading madness and
destruction. Half-remembered, poorly understood prophecies seem to
point to the young princess Anne Dare, rightful heir to the throne
of Crotheny, as the world's only hope. Yet Anne is hunted by the
minions of the usurper Robert, whose return from the grave has
opened a doorway through which sinister sorceries have poured into
the world. Though Anne herself is the conduit of fearsome powers
beyond her understanding and control, it is time for girl to become
woman, princess to become queen. Anne must stop running and instead
march at the head of an army to take back her kingdom . . . or die
But a mysterious assassin stalks her, so skilled in the deadly
fencing style of dessrata that even Anne's friend and protector
Cazio, a master of the form, cannot stand against him, nor can her
sworn defender, the young knight Neil MeqVren.
As for Anne's other companions-Aspar White, the royal holter who
bears an enchanted arrow capable of felling the Briar King; and
Stephen Darige, the monk who blew the horn that woke the Briar King
from his slumber-they cannot help her, as their separate paths
carry them ever deeper into a deadly maze of myth and magic from
which return may be impossible.
Meanwhile, Queen Muriele is a prisoner of the false king. With no
allies but a crippled musician, who is himself a prisoner, and a
servingwoman who is both more and less than she seems, Muriele will
find herself a pawn in Robert's schemes for conquest-and a weapon
to be used against her own daughter.
