Cadrith Elanis has returned to Tralodren, picking up where he left off centuries before. While Cadrissa isn’t sure how she fits into his plans, her abduction has left her with little hope but always alert for any chance of escape … if one ever comes. Meanwhile, the other mercenaries have scattered. They did their job, received their pay, and now just want to live their lives. But events start pulling them back to each other for something grander than their own imaginations and fears can envision. But that’s just the start of still more revelations and trials to come.
