Read the sixth book in the epic saga Time Magazine called, "One of the best fantasy series of the past decade."
Chaol Westfall has arrived in the city of Antica to forge an alliance with the Khagan of the Southern Continent's vast armies and to seek healing at the famed Torre Cesme. Yrene Towers, a healer, has no desire to help the young lord, yet she has sworn an oath to assist those in need and she will honor it-despite the shadows from his past, which could engulf them both.
While they become entangled in the political webs of the khaganate, deep in the mountains, long-awaited answers slumber. Answers that might offer their world a chance at survival-or doom them all . . .
