    The ancient csestriim are back to finish their purge of humanity; armies march against the capital; leaches, solitary beings who draw power from the natural world to fuel their extraordinary abilities, maneuver on all sides to affect the outcome of the war; and capricious gods walk the earth in human guise with agendas of their own.

    Pyrre Lakatur is not, to her mind, an assassin, not a murderer - she is a priestess. At least, she will be once she passes her final trial. The problem isn't the killing. The problem, rather, is love. For to complete her trial, Pyrre has ten days to kill the seven people enumerated in an ancient song, including "the one who made your mind and body sing with love / who will not come again." Pyrre isn't sure she's ever been in love.

    Kaiser Sanlitun ist tot, und sein Reich liegt in Trümmern: Die mächtigen Csestriim, seit jeher die tödlichsten Feinde der Menschen, sind nach Annur zurückgekehrt.

Während ihre Welt im Chaos zu versinken droht, versuchen Kaden, Adare und Valyn, die drei Erben Sanlituns, den Thron ihres Vaters und ihre Untertanen zu retten.

    Als der Kaiser von Annur heimtückisch ermordet wird, geht die Verantwortung für das Reich auf seine drei Kinder über.

Valyn wird auf einer abgelegenen Insel zum Elitekrieger ausgebildet, und Adare ist die oberste Ministerin am Kaiserhof.
