She must recover the Dominion Jewel, a legendary gem that has enormous power for good…in the right hands. And Alanna must work fast. Her archenemy, Duke Roger, is back and more formidable than ever, putting Tortall in great danger. As she puts her hard-won skills to use, Alanna discovers through fierce combat and ceaseless searching that she can make a future worthy of her mythic past—both as a warrior and as a woman.
