Nadhron is a tiny mountainous kingdom on the eastern frontier of Shaltan, a sprawling kingdom ruled by Khanor, an ambitious man with imperial aspirations.

Shaltan’s stronger wizards and vast resources made Nadhron’s stubborn survival remarkable, but after decades of bitter war between the two countries, the king of Nadhron was killed by treachery. A man named Faladwen died defending him. On the same day, across the forest and down by the river in the little village of Faeran, Faladwen’s wife gave birth to a baby girl, Mari. Mari has grown up under the yoke of King Khanor and his Shalt minions, who have spent the seventeen years since the conquest trying to break the spirit of the Nadhrau people. Raised by a stepfather who sided with Khanor in the war and a mother who still whispers secret stories of the rightful king to her children, Mari carries the fierce spirit of Nadhrau patriotism. But she is a girl in a world dominated by men, a peasant in a land ruled by noblemen, and a native Nadhrau in a time when the Shalt treat her people like animals.Her opportunity to save her world comes when she meets a young man, Brened, who claims to be Neladhan’s nephew and the rightful ruler of Nadhron. Though it means losing many of the people she loves, perhaps forever, Mari ultimately must discern the difference between treachery and loyalty, between faith and choice, between tradition and desire, and between what she wants to be and what others want for her....
