Summary

"Dhulyn Wolfshead and Parno Lionsmane were members of the Mercenary Guild, both veterans of numerous battles and missions, each a master of martial arts. But more than that Dhulyn and Parno were Partners, a Mercenary bond that could only be broken by one or both of their deaths." "Dhulyn had once believed she was the last of her tribe, the only survivor of a terrible massacre when she was a young child. Sold into slavery and rescued by a pirate, Dhulyn had learned the hardest lessons life had to teach. Now she was also learning how to master her Visions of the future and the past. And always, she also searched for anyone who might have survived the destruction of her tribe." "Raised in more civilized lands than Dhulyn, Parno came from a family of some importance. He chose not to speak about why he'd abandoned them or been cast out, and no Mercenary Brother would have asked him."

But when they accepted the surrender of Prince Edmir, heir to the Tegriani realm, Dhulyn and Parno were caught in an untenable position. The Common Rule of the Mercenary Brothers stated that prisoners taken by them would go free, unmolested and unransomed. So when the War Commander they had been fighting for refused to honor this agreement, the two not only broke their contract, but decided to extricate both themselves and the prince from what had now become an enemy camp. And thus they took the first step along a path that might lead them to Dhulyn's heart's desire, or into a magical trap from which there might be no escape ..."--BOOK JACKET.
