Following The Shining Ones, the enemies have been identified, and the cards are dealt. Queen Ehlana, kidnapped by the forces of Cyrgon, is held captive against Sparhawk's delivering of Bhelliom. The Troll Gods, freed in the climax of The Shining Ones, along with Sparhawk and the Younger Gods set out to stop Cyrgon as a greater threat looms. Cyrgon, desperate after his defeat, unleashes Bhelliom's arch-rival, Klæl, and Sparhawk, taking on his full role as Anakha, goes to face Cyrgon in the Hidden City of the Cyrgai.
