Publisher's Summary

Magiere, Leesil, and elven dog Chap are continuing their quest to find the powerful Orb of Air. But they are not alone. Aging elven assassin Brot’an has forced his company on them while also offering his protection. Chap doesn’t believe his ruse, however. As they sail, Magiere struggles with her own dark nature, using Leesil’s love as an anchor to keep her grounded. For the personal price she paid to procure the Orb of Fire was more than she thought - and more than she wants to reveal to anyone. But that is exactly what the cunning Brot’an wants to know. And he is willing to do whatever it takes - even if he must reveal his own dreaded secrets, which may cost the entire party their lives… and their very souls.

Refreshing return to the original story

The last two books were tedious as Win is ridiculously annoying, but I didn't want to miss the story of the dhampir and company. This finally stop focusing in Win and gives the back story of what happened to orb 1 and 2. It was a little hard to follow because of all the flashbacks, but it filled in much that had been skipped over in the previous book. This books biggest theme is what happened amongst the elven community. good story.
