Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Great, grand thundering adventure…sure to stir even an armchair reader’s blood.”—Janny Wurts, author of Initiate’s Trial

“I loved it...a wonderful fantasy on the high seas....It’s got romance and disaster and plenty of magic.”—Kate Elliott, author of Cold Steel

“A fast-paced story with heart, humor, and panache. This is heroic fantasy in the grand style.”—Susan Shwartz, author of Hostile Takeover

Library Journal
Recurring nightmares send the diminutive (12-inch-tall) Lady Jinnarin in search of allies to help her find her missing mate, even though such an undertaking will involve revealing the existence of her kind--the Pysks, or Hidden Ones--to the world. McKiernan continues to delve into the land of Mithgar's history in a heroic adventure that features an endearing protagonist. Fans of The Eye of the Hunter ( LJ 9/15/92) will be particularly drawn to this related work, which has a place in most fantasy collections.
