Short Synopsis
David Anthony Durham presents the thrilling new installment in his ambitious Acacia Trilogy, which has been praised by the Washington Post as "gripping and sophisticated."

Full Synopsis
A few years have passed since the conquering of the Mein, and Queen Corinn is firmly in control of the Known World—perhaps too firmly. With plans to expand her empire, she sends her brother, Daniel, on an exploratory mission to the Other Lands. There Daniel discovers a lush, exotic mainland ruled by an alliance of tribes that poses a grave danger to the stability of the Known World. Is Queen Corinn strong enough to face this new challenge? Fans of this bold, imaginative series will not be disappointed in the answer.
