With the invasion of Dara complete, and the Wall of Storms breached, the world has opened to new possibilities for the gods and people of both empires as the sweeping saga of the Dandelion Dynasty continues in this third book in the series.
Princess Thera once known as Empress UEna of Dara; yielded the throne to her younger brother in order to journey to Ukyu-Gonde to war with the Lyucu, and has crossed the impenetrable Wall of Storms with a fleet of ships and ten thousand people. Constantly facing adversity, she faces new challenges by doing the most interesting thing and not letting the past dictate the present.
In Dara, the Lyucu leadership bristles with rivalries as power and perspectives change between the remains of the Dandelion courts. Here, mothers and daughters, Empress and Pekyu alike, nurture the seeds of plans that will take years to bloom. As the conquerors and the conquered jockey for position in these new regimes, tradition gives way to new justifications for power.
