"...continues the story of Ana and Lazar with the confrontation between the demigod Iridor, and the demon Maliz spiraling towards the ruin of the beautiful city's future. Yet all the while an all too earthly threat looms in the form of Percheron's centuries–old rival, Galinsea. The threat of war may only be thwarted by a man with a dark secret and an odalisque facing execution...
To avert bloodshed, an emissary must be sent to the enemy's capital in a goodwill gesture, but no one could foresee the danger of the Nizari Assassins in their desert fortress, or their charismatic leader, who has his own plans to deliver salvation to Percheron."
