The city-state of Percheron is in challenge. Zaradine Ana has been captured via the mysterious Arafanz and his barren region warriors and is being held of their remoted fortress. it's also suspected that she is pregnant with Zar Boaz's son, the inheritor to the throne . . .
Though Lazar has made it out of the barren region, his heroics in bringing the Valide and Grand Vizier to defense have price him. with the drezden ailment that befalls him while he's vulnerable, he's too unwell to maneuver from his mattress, whilst support comes from an unforeseen resource . . .
Zar Boaz unearths himself trapped via either his center and his head. even though he can reflect on not anything yet Ana, imprisoned within the wasteland, his state is on the point of struggle and his Spur is helpless. Hatching a bold plan, he demands Percheron's most powerful to make yet another pilgrimage into the wasteland, whilst warships threaten Percheron's harbor, and the Goddess reaches the crest of her ascent, throwing all parties—mortal and divine—into a dangerous conflict for his or her hearts, their lives, and their souls.
