Finally each is forced into a choice of historical proportions and deeply personal emotion. The gods themselves awaken, and the destruction of the fabulously wealthy continent of Maztica looms on the horizon.
Yet Erix bears with her a desperate secret, and with that secret comes the lone hope that Maztica can survive...
