Product Description: Skirmish takes readers into brand-new territory, beginning right after the conclusion of The Sun Sword. The Terafin has been assassinated by a demon, and the battle for the House Seat will now begin. Four candidates have declared themselves, but Jewel, the Terafin's own choice to become the next Terafin, has yet to announce her intentions. By the time she does announce her candidacy, attempts have been made on her life by demons. She has also walked along and shut a magical road against some of the demons, while at the same time, she's acquired a number of nonhuman allies. But whether Jewel and her allies--both mortal and magical--will all survive the war that is now beginning is very much in question.
