The young Pictish warrior Kral, aided by his loyal cadre of friends, sails to the sinister and dangerous realm of Stygia, on the trail of the stolen holy relic that could save his people—the Teeth of the Ice Bear.

Read an Excerpt

Nothing worth doing . . .

 Gorian and his men were after the Teeth of the Ice Bear. And, since they had the assistance of some sorcerer—who presumably told the Stygian responsible for its theft about the crown in the first place—they would have some idea where to find it.
 Not much to go on, Kral thought. But better than nothing, which was what they had had only moments before.
 “So we stay with them?” Mikelo asked, just as Donial was about to.
 “Yes,” Kral replied, “and when they find the crown, we take it instead.”
 “There are more of them, and better armed,” Donial said. “And they have magic on their side.”
 Kral chuckled, without humor. “Did I say it would be easy?”
