Overview

Vostock Soundredeson has planned for ten years to destroy his brother-in-law, Olse the Conqueror. As events begin to come to a head, Vostock must harden his resolve -- and survive the treacheries of a war-torn, near-lawless land on his way to Aeternox, the Eternal City -- the ultimate prize he intends to deliver to, and then take from Olse:

"Whatever the skjalds of my native Goethland may sing of my story, you can be sure it will be full of blood, and courage, and grim fate. When the Ibarran poets put it to rhyme, love will no doubt feature prominently, and treachery. Neither will be wrong. There are many sides to every story, and performers must play to their audience.

"I will tell the story as it happened, which is perhaps the least entertaining way any tale may be told. I am no skjald, no poet. I am Vostock Soundredeson, Vostock the Serpent, Vostock the Betrayer.

"I am tired, and the tale is long."

"McClung has an impressive ability to write compelling characters & a fast paced & action packed plot that never seems to let up." -Speculative Book Review
