The High Lord of the Union is to be executed for treason in three days, and his appointed stand-in—Thane, Dread Lord of Eladria—is relieved to finally see the end of the matter...until a strange pair of trespassers from Lyntara end up in his custody and turn everything upside-down.
Suddenly dark secrets are coming to light, old loyalties are called into question, and new duties demand more of both Thane and his Mirror than either of them ever expected.
Forced to accept the word of a Lyntaran mage or risk the entire Union, they find themselves on the one battlefield they're not ready for. Will they be able to stop the High Lord's treachery from destroying them all, or will more than the High Lord's mind be broken?
