From back of book: Zoufalstvi. Epätoiva. Asa. Three words in three very different languages, and yet Soria understand. Like all members of Dirk & Steele, she has a gift, and hers is communication: That was why she was chosen to address the stranger. Strong as a lion, quick as a serpent, Karr is his name, and in his day he was king. But he is a son of strife, a creature of tragedy. As fire consumed all he loved, so an icy sleephas been his atonement. Now, against his will, he has awoken. Zoufalstvi. Epätoiva. Asa. In English, the word is despair. But Soria knows the words for love.
