You can alomost hear the sabers clash in this rousing tale of good and evil and pasionate love, of warrior queens, white witches and sorcerers. After the devastating raid on her peaceful little village, Elayna and her brother are captured and nearly sold into slavery. Saved from this terrible fate by the imperious warrior queen, Cydell Ra Sadiin, Elayna is brought to the palace to serve her. The two are immediate foes. But these two powerful women are destined to join forces. And so, when rumblings of war reach the palace, Cydell, ruler of Mauldar, and Elayna, the Fair Witch of Avoreed, journey to Windsom Keep to combat the dark menace which threatens Cydell's empire and Elayna's very life. But along the way they must first conquer the wild magic of their passionate dreams, learn the secrets of the heart-stone, and accept the deep and rapturous love they feel for each other-a love that will transend the powers of evil.
