Valdemar's peril!

With Elspeth, the heir to the throne of Valdemar, come of marriageable age, Talia, the Queen's Own Herald returns to court to find Queen and heir beset by diplomatic intrigue as various forces vie for control of Elspeth's future.

For a different magic than that of the Heralds is loose in Ancar's realm – an evil and ancient sorcery that may destroy all of Valdemar unless Talia can send warning to her Queen in time!
