On the island of Eswiland, there are humans, and there are Nightwalkers, the feared and hated warlocks driven long ago into their hidden kingdom of Talverdin in the west. The most recent attempt at reconciliation went terribly wrong when one of the Nightwalker emissaries ran away with the wife of the human king of Dunmorra. But though peoples and kingdoms are divided by fear and hate, two brothers work to change the world through their kinship.
