Jaele has lived an idyllic life with her family by the sea, raised on the myths of the heroic Queen Galha and her defeat of the accursed Sea Raiders - a fearsome race long banished to a dry, barren land.At eighteen, Jaele's life is shattered when her family is murdered by a marauding band of Sea Raiders. Overwhelmed by rage and grief, and armed only with her father's dagger and his stories of a legendary warrior queen, Jaele sets out on her own epic quest for vengeance.As she journeys through lands of strangeness and wonder, she encounters fantastical creatures and peoples - among them the tree silga, the iben, the Alilan and the fishfolk. She entreats them to take up her cause - but most of all she yearns for the aid and companionship of a mysterious, troubled young man named Dorin. Ultimately, Jaele is faced with a confrontation for which she could never have prepared.
