Enfyse Hier-Heulog was once a mercenary in the ancient Red-and-Burning-Star Cavalry Corps of the Plains King; due to circumstances she keeps to herself, she left and is now a sword-for-hire, roaming the six kingdoms killing and fighting as is convenient. The Sorceror-Lord Tanabassum of Yomstol, whose family has long possessed a genetic affinity for the supernatural arts, hires Hier-Heulog for a very special and lucrative job: as the outward kingdom of Greater Arduition advances upon Yomstol with a great army, the Lord Tanabassum is sending his daughter, Rima, who possesses no natural talent for sorcery, away and to safety with Hier-Heulog as her bodyguard.
The two women are as different as night and day, and the failure of the Lord Tanabassum’s plan seems imminent. But even as familiarity breeds contempt, shared danger can bring opposites together: soon, the dusty mercenary from the North and the pampered Lanna from the eldest family of the eldest kingdom in the World begin to form a bond not even the Sorceror-Lord could have anticipated.
