In the twilight of a lost age of high magics, the great warrior Queen called White Jenna found a frail, one-armed child on the field of battle. In the way of the Hames of the Dales, she adopted the child, named her Scillia, and made the girl her heir, destined to rule as Queen at Jenna's passing.

But Jenna's natural son Jem, younger than Scillia, has been raised in the kingdom of their enemies as a hostage and foster son. He has been taught to resent his foster sister's power and covet the throne for himself and his Garun masters, unleashing a terrible time of bloodshed and betrayal.
