The Stormriders land their splendid winged stallions on the airy battlements of Isse Tower. Far below, the superstitious servants who dwell in the fortress' lower depths tell ghastly tales of evil creatures inhabiting the world outside, a world they have only glimpsed. Yet it is the least of the lowly, a mute, scarred, and utterly despised foundling, who dares to scale the Tower, sneak aboard a Windship, and then dive from the sky.
Though her memory remains clouded by sorcery, Imrhien (heroine of The Ill-Made Mute) must take vital news to the King-Emperor of Caermelor, hoping also to find the fearless ranger who has won her heart.
