Publisher's Summary

Winter looms in this place of icy splendor near the top of the world-chilling a heart already frozen by hatred and cold dreams of revenge? Experience and adversity have made the storyteller Chakliux a wise and powerful hunter and a man of great respect. But a tender heart is his weakness. In his village lives the beautiful Aqamdax for whom he yearns, though she is mated to a cruel and dangerous tribesman she does not love. It is Chakliux she runs to under a clear, moonlit sky while the village sleeps. But there can be no future for them together until a curse upon their people has been transcended. And then there is K'os, the healing woman - maddened and embittered by the outrage she was forced to endure years earlier - outcast and enslaved by the leader of the enemy tribe against whom she has sworn vengeance. To enact her savage and terrible justice, she will use - and destroy - anyone, if necessary, including the boy-turned-man she rescued in infancy and raised as her son: Chakliux, the storyteller. Return now to a frozen land in a remarkable time eighty centuries past, when the spirit was tested - and strengthened - by the cruelties of nature and the great mysteries of life.
