While Krag and her mage-mentor, Brana, are traveling for pleasure, bad news arrives. Evil traitorous mage, Owen, is free. Believing herself in danger, the young queen, Jaime, designates a reluctant Krag as her heir. In time, Krag suspects Brana of setting herself as bait to lure Owen from hiding. Her fears come true when Brana is captured.
Owen delivers an ultimatum to Jaime: Yield the throne or face five days of disaster before he, ultimately, destroys Brana. Jaime is determined to fight, and Krag determined to save Brana. As Krag relies on deception and magic to find a solution, the risk to all she loves is terrible.
