When Flint Fireforge, dwarf and metal-smith, receives a wondrous summons from the Speaker of the Sun, he journeys to the fabled elven city of Qualinost. There he meets Tanis, a thoughtful youth horn of a tragic union between elf and man. Tanis and Flint, each a misfit in his own way, find themselves unlikely friends. But a pompous elf lord is mysteriously slain, and another elf soon meets the same fate. Tanis stands accused, and if Flint and he cannot prove his innocence, the half-elf will be banished forever. Solving the mystery will be a perilous task. Time is on the murderer's side, and he is not finished yet...
The tempestuous affair of Kitiara Uth Matar and Tanis Half-Elven begins with the sword. Life isn't simple for the hotheaded pair. They must contend with a carnivorous, two-headed troll; a deposed leader who believes Kitiara is the cause of the ruler's troubles; a vindictive mage who seeks peculiar vengeance; and Kit's hulking former lover. They also meet a beautiful magic-user hiding a painful secret, and a giant owl with a sardonic sense of humor. Here is the long-awaited story of the meeting of Tanis and Kitiara, a tale of love, lust, betrayal and revenge that takes the reader through Krynn and south to the glacial Icereach. Ellen Porath, co-author of Kindred Spirits, tells this exciting new tale, the fifth in the DRAGONLANCE® Saga Meetings Sextet.
