I - The Prophecy
Ammanon, an empire spanning half the known
world, prospers under the rule of Emperor Galan. He is a fearsome
warrior, great of stature and quick of mind; but he is about to
face a different sort of enemy, one who destroys by cleverness
and without heir, Galan waits on the prophecy that foretells of
a woman who will come to his side and save Ammanon. Now the time
of fulfillment has passed, and Galan is receiving alarms from
a translator who has uncovered a plot to assassinate him. Where
is this woman of the prophecy?
woman is the translator, Eydain. Clad always in mourning veils
to hide her alien appearance, she remains undiscovered. When they
finally meet, the lonely emperor finds that Eydain knows nothing
of the prophecy and would rather run than wed. Bitterly he forces
her to marry as his captive.
two now contend with each other as well as spies and mercenaries
taking hold in the city. Together with Ammanon's highly trained
forces, they face the threat with a series of daring ploys. But
the final battle with this elusive foe is yet to come.

Azzariah foresaw. The distress and oppression of his visions
comes from within Ez'Elonia itself.

very ones he came to deliver. With the unsuspecting Eydain at
the mercy of the treacherous King Haben, the emperor again finds
he must guard this rare woman with his life, for within her
