The doors to the Temple of Amara are sealed shut, leaving citizens of Thenai to wonder what lies inside. Abroad, the war effort flags and in the city itself, unrest has begun to spread.
In the middle of it all, the amazon Khloe attempts desperately to find a missing child and begins to suspect it has something to do with the temple's transformation.
Far away, the hero Geon has almost completed his angelic metamorphosis. As his power grows, he swears an oath to restore Amara's priesthood. He ventures far from home to find the last surviving priestess, unaware that something is hunting him.
The eighth book of the Wind of Destiny series.
