Sparhawk, the Pandion Knight and Queen's Champion, returns from a long spell of exile to find his native land overrun with evil and intrigue, and his young queen grievously ill. Indeed, Ehlana lies magically entombed within a block of crystal, doomed to die unless a cure can be found within a year.
But as Sparhawk and his allies—who include Sephrenia, the ageless sorceress, and Flute, the strange and powerful girl-child—seek to save Ehlana and the land, they discover that the evil is even greater and more pervasive than they had feared.
