Author(s): A. J. Smith
The second book in A.J. Smith's epic saga of Ro. In the court of every city in the lands of Ro, a sorceress sits. And in the minds of that city's people, each sorceress weaves a song. She and her sisters sing of the liberation of the land, the taming of the highland tribes, and the birth of a precious new race: the children of a dead god. Of course, they do not sing of the death of young Prince Christophe at the hands of that god. Particularly as his replacement dances so well to their tune. Yet all songs have an end. An ending speeded when the assassin Rham Jas Rami accepts a commission from Bromvy Black Guard, traitor duke of Canarn. The rebellion of Ro has begun.
A. J. Smith is the author of THE BLACK GUARD. He spent twelve years devising The Long War chronicles. When not living in the Lands of Ro, he works in secondary education.
