Ahjvar, the assassin known as the Leopard, wants only to die, to
end the curse that binds him to a life of horror. Although he has
no reason to trust the goddess Catairanach or her messenger
Deyandara, fugitive heir to a murdered tribal queen, desperation
leads him to accept her bargain: if he kills the mad prophet known
as the Voice of Marakand, Catairanach will free him of his curse.
Accompanying him on his mission is the one person he has let close
to him in a lifetime of death, a runaway slave named Ghu. Ahj knows
Ghu is far from the half-wit others think him, but in Marakand, the
great city where the caravan roads of east and west meet, both will
need to face the deepest secrets of their souls, if either is to
survive the undying enemies who hunt them and find a way through
the darkness that damns the Leopard.
To Marakand, too, come a Northron wanderer and her demon "verrbjarn
"lover, carrying the obsidian sword Lakkariss, a weapon forged by
the Old Great Gods to bring their justice to the seven devils who
escaped the cold hells so long before.
