Over the course of six decades, Grand Master ANDRE NORTON has
created a universe of diverse and unforgettable worlds -- yet none
more compelling and alive than the city Kronengred in a faraway
dukedom; a place rich in intoxicating aromas that are capable of
strange enchantments...and devastating malevolence.
An orphaned child and captive scullery maid, young Willadene
possesses an uncanny ability to sense and understand the magical
odors that pervade her world. It is this remarkable talent -- or
curse -- that carries her far from the fetid kitchen into an
apprenticeship with a revered herbalist and ultimately to the
highest circles of the Ducal court. But there is depravity lurking
within the castle's walls, inspiring brazen treacheries and
usurpations -- and a foul abduction as unthinkable as it is
unexpected. Something horribly strange and forbidden has struck at
the dawn of a new day of corruption and terror. And an innocent
girl finds the heightened sense that has been her fortune is now
drawing her down into a maelstrom of evil.
