The story continues. In the nonstop action that is Tor Bakers new world, you'd think everyone would recognize that there's simply no time for a break. What with Larval assassins trying to kill him, stopping a civil war and now a new attack from Austra just to round things out. But the Royal family and the Council of Counts doesn't see it that way. After a few little traumatic and hectic events, they all agree that what Tor really needs is to relax and have some fun. But, as always, someone else seems to have a different plan for him. A very different plan indeed.
