With the death of the evil Lord Malrec, Alannys and her friends have turned the tide of civil war in Ravanmark in their favor. And yet, there is no time to relax. The rest of the Dark Alliance continues to fight. Cadenda comes calling, bringing the promise of war to enforce King Dorramon's engagement. And from the shadows, an even larger threat emerges. Strange, inflammatory rhetoric sweeps the nation, and even the stalwart Royal Guard can no longer be trusted.
But how can Alannys defend herself against a menace she can’t even see?
As the movement to ‘take the power of the few to the many’ continues to grow, and opposition to her swells stronger than ever, Alannys turns to the one thing that can prove her beyond a doubt—or destroy her beyond any recovery—the Acts of the Redeemer. But before she can perform them, she has to cross Ravanmark and the sea to reach Mount Mouseion..and it looks like the journey itself might kill her.
Join Alannys and her friends again as they embark on a journey by land and by sea, risking everything to travel to the one place where they might be able to save Ravanmark--and themselves.
