In her quest to save the Aurelian Empire, Valeria reached for too much power too quickly, and it has rooted a darkness inside her. Unable to confess the truth, Valeria turns to Kerrec, her former mentor and one of the elite Riders. But Kerrec is also deeply wounded and his darkness is deeper than hers--but he refuses to face it until his weakness nearly destroys the Riders and their immortal white stallions. Kerrec is sent from the Mountain on a desperate quest for healing. Valeria is forbidden to follow him but she does anyway, driven by a power she cannot understand. Once again the threat of war and unrest is spread throughout the land, the barbarian hordes have returned and it is Valeria--and Kerrec--who must gather their strength and their wounded magic to protect all that they believe in... But who will believe in them?
