Theater, magic, art, and politics all blend in this amazing high-fantasy series from the imagination of Melanie Rawn
the magical theater troupe, continues to build audiences. But Cayden is
increasingly troubled by his “elsewhens,” the uncontrolled moments when
he is plunged into visions of the possible futures. He fears that his
Fae gift will forever taint his friendships; his friends fear that his
increasing distance will destroy him.
But worldly success follows them — an apparent loss in the Trials leads to Touchstone being selected to travel to the Continent with a Royal Embassy to collect Prince Ashgar’s new bride. They are the first theater artists to appear outside Albeyn for at least seventy years — for magic is suspect and forbidden elsewhere, and the Kingdom’s easy race mixing and magic use horrifies the people they are to travel among.
