Valanandir's throat spasms as he tries not to choke.
He spits out a salty mouthful of seawater and grips some nearby rigging one-handed as the ship rocks beneath him.
Under skies devoid of moon or sun, Valanandir fights for his life alongside his Sea Elf crew. But his ship already burns like a funeral pyre in the middle of the storm-tossed ocean.
...And far more than he realizes depends on his survival.
Lose yourself in the thoroughly imagined World of Lasniniar with this first novel in the epic fantasy series by the author of the Fatal Empire series, Jacquelyn Smith.
