In this book Alec and Seregil are traveling with Alec's "child of no woman" Sebrahn. Seregil and company return to the home that Seregil was banished from--their stay is all too brief. As they set out again, they're being pursued by people (Alec's mountain kin) whose purpose seems to be to capture those like Sebrahn. They, along with Micum, go on a mission to learn more about him, by finding the spell books used to create him.

I was disappointed with this book, first of all because not a lot happens for most of the book. Very little is learned about Sebrahn, and the romantic aspect is sorely lacking. There's a bit of magic, but nothing we haven't seen is the previous books. This is clearly an installment, and suffers from "second book in a trilogy" syndrome. It doesn't work as a standalone book at all. Still, one can hold out hope for the next book.
