A woman with more secrets than she realises.
A lord who has lost his luck.
A kingdom on the verge of war as vengeful lords fight to claim its throne.
Order can only reign over chaos for so long, and now, twenty years after claiming the Alekkan throne, King Ake Bluefinn once again has a fight on his hands. His enemies are stirring in the North, old resentments flaring, vengeance on their minds. The dreamers see what is coming, warning the king of a trouble greater than any he has faced, raising fears of unimaginable destruction and a winter colder than any that has come before.
