In an empire caught between the myth of the past and its army's aggressive expansion, four people challenge fate.
Gery, a Fleet deserter, has found sanctuary in the great marble rose of Shall, a floating city that hangs at the edge of the perceived universe. After he unwillingly receives a vision of Shall's destruction, he returns to the harsh realities of the universe to fight his way back to a world he had hoped to forget.
With Gery is Athane, a delicate woman with hidden talents, who must learn to fight, kill and ultimately lead as she accompanies Gery into the dangers that lie ahead.
Baisym, a desert nomad, wakes feeling he must find a way to save his family and his tribe. His search takes him far from his world where he must stave off a threat greater than any he could imagine.
A fighter obsessed with the future, Bellein holds herself in anonymity, biding her time until she is ready to strike. With Deith, her loyal friend and sometime lover, she must make her way to the home of her childhood, where she will find her end. Or her beginning.
Their lives intertwine, leading them into the heart of what has been and what is yet to be: The Sovereign's Hold.
