Arilyn Moonblade is one of the two best assassins in the Northlands. Or maybe both.
From Cormyr to Waterdeep, Harpers are being murdered. The trail leads to the half-elven adventurer Arilyn. Is she guilty, or is she the next target? No one, not even Arilyn, is entirely certain. Master Harper Khelben Arunsun sends Danilo Thann to find out – and to decide whether to help her, or stop her.
Tormented by strange dreams and stalked by shadows, Arilyn must uncover the ancient secret of her sword's power in order to find and face the Harper assassin.
