An uneasy peace, bought by the lives of innocents, exists between the medieval Kingdoms of Hytanica and Cokyri. Sixteen years previously, Cokyri had, for unknown reasons, stealthily abducted and murdered infant boys of Hytanican birth, then abruptly abandoned its war effort. But although the Cokyrians had left behind forty-eight bodies for grieving parents to claim, one child was not found. Now, when a teenage Cokyrian boy is found within the walls of Hytanica, that mystery may at last be solved. This boy, Narian, will introduce Alera to a world in which women serve a purpose and not just a husband, giving her the strength to resist the marriage her father has arranged for her. But when Narian’s sinister past is uncovered, and war with Cokyri looms again, he must fight to defy a fate ordained at his birth.
