In this second installment of the cycle of Oak, the old King is dead, and the foolish Prince Florian assumes the throne. Queen Ysa still controls the land from behind the scenes, but her unworthy, headstrong son makes it difficult. Her husband's illegitimate daughter, Ashen, still causes trouble, and Ysa's newest magical ally has been exposed as a traitor. And still, the unknown threat from the North continues to grow. (May)
