Description
"From one of Fantasy's shining new lights comes this first volume in a magnificent epic set in a richly realized land and culture where bloody rebellion may soon destroy the kingdom, while sorcerous confrontations and the secret workings of an otherworldly race could transform the very land into a place in which no mortal was ever meant to dwell." "It begins with the threat of civil war. For though King Henry still holds the crown of Wendar, his reign has long been contested by his sister Sabella. There are many eager to flock to her banner, whether from their belief in her cause or the hope of personal gain. And there are ways to bring others under her command, methods to make even the most unwilling lord into a weapon pointed at the very heart of Henry's realm." "Torn by internal strife, Wendar also faces deadly raids from the north by an inhuman race, the Eika, and from the east by the "winged" riders, the Qumans. And terrifying portents are being seen by many; old ruins restored to life under the light of the full moon and peopled by the long vanished Lost Ones; dark spirits walking the land in broad daylight." "And suddenly two innocents - Alain, a young man who may find his future in a vision granted by the Lady of Battles, and Liath, a young woman with the power to change the course of history if she can only learn to master her fear and seize what is rightfully hers - are about to be thrust into the midst of the conflict."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

It begins with civil war....
For though King Henry still holds the crown of Wendar, his reign has long been contested by his sister Sabella. There are many eager to flock to her banner, and there are ways to make even the most unwilling lord into a weapon pointed at the heart of Henry's realm.
Torn by internal strife, Wendar also faces deadly raids from the north by an inhuman race, the Eika. And now terrifying portents are being seen; old ruins restored to life under the light of the full moon and peopled by the long-vanished Lost Ones; dark spirits walking the land in broad daylight.
And suddenly two innocents are about to be thrust into the middle of the conflict.
Liath, who has spent her early years fleeing from unknown enemies, is a young woman with the power to change the course of history if she can only learn to master her fear and seize what is rightfully hers.
While Alain, a young man who may find his future in a vision granted by the Lady of Battles, must first unravel the mystery of who he is—whether the bastard son of a noble father, the half-breed child of an elfin lord, the unwanted get of a whore, or the heir to a proud and ancient lineage. For only when he discovers the truth can he accept the destiny for which he was born.
Liath and Alain, each trapped in a personal struggle for survival, both helplessly being drawn into a far greater battle, a war in which sorcery not swords will determine the final outcome, and the land itself may be irrevocably reshaped by the forces unleashed....
