Terisa Morgan desperately needed to escape. Gilbur was trying to kill her, Castellan Lebbick wanted to torture her, and she needed to find Geraden. Orison was being attacked by the Alend army poised at the gates... Eremis, the traitor was working with Gilbur in league with the hated Cadwals and the Arch-Imager Vagel...King Joyse's actions could not be explained.
Everything that Geraden loved was about to be destroyed--unless the two of them could find a way to prevent it by using the talent for mirrors and Imagery that Terisa now knew they both possessed...a talent that made them extremely powerful and extremely dangerous to Eremis. And Terisa knew that Eremis would use all the evil means at his disposal to insure the success of his master plan, which meant that the kingdom would be lost and she and Geraden would surely die.
