Publisher's Summary

She saw the knight in the mirror at sunset....

During the wedding festivities of his king, Cyan Dag, a knight of Gloinmere, is sought out by a mysterious bard and told a terrifying tale: that the king has married a false queen - a lie cloaked in ancient and powerful sorcery. Spurred on by his steadfast honor and loyalty, Cyan departs on a dangerous quest to rescue the real queen from her tower prison, to prevent war, and to awaken magic in a land that has lost its way.

Ethereal and delightful

This is one of my favorite books by Patricia McKillip. The story is lovely and the narration is excellent. I would love to see even more of her books on Audible! (like The Bell at Sealey Head and Something Rich and Strange for example)

A long time favorite.

I have this in audio and hardcover and return to it regularly. I love the intricate intertwining plots and the poetic language

couldnt finish....

I live her books, but I could not get through this one. The characters all sound the same...the story line is very fractured, ehich in her other books I can follow, but not on the book
