The ruler of Homana, and the next link in the generations-old prophecy the Firstborn. Now the time had come for all three to take the paths for which they were fated: Brennan, heir to the throne of Homana, would face the menace of 3 unknown assassins and treacherous Ihlini magic. Hart, Brennan's younger twin, must journey to Solinde, the kingdom which would one day be his to rule--a land that longed to see the Cheysuli prince overthrown. And Corin, the youngest prince, must battle sorcery and madness in the court of distant Atvia. Three princes, three destinies--and if even one should fail to fulfill the patterns of prophecy, Hotnanan and Cheysuli alike would pay a deadly price.... DAUGHTER OF THE LION She is Keely, twin sister to Corin, and daughter to Niall, the ruler of Homana, and she alone has the power to shapechange into any form--a power akin to that of the Firstborn. Like her brothers, Keely has been chosen to play a crucial part in the Firstborn's prophecy. Yet Keely is no weak pawn to be used in men's games of power and diplomacy. Trained alongside her brothers in the art of war, gifted with more of the old magic than most of her close kin, she will not easily give way even to Niall's commands, nor be forced against her will into an arranged marriage. But others besides Keely's father have] plans for her future. Strahan, the most powerful Ihlini sorcerer, is preparing a trap from which even one as magically-gifted as Keely may find no escape. And in the deepwood, another waits to challenge Keely--an outlaw fully as dangerous to her future freedom as Strahan is to her life.
This is a typical Serrano painting: a scene from history--romanticized, politicized, and lacking all symbolism--commemorating the death in battle of the Tza'ab "Diviner of the Golden Wind." Yet the placement of his figure, far to the left of the action, indicates that he is anything but the central focus of the piece. Serrano is more interested in painting the fierce expressions on Tza'ab faces even as they flee the battlefield, foreshadowing the coming century of vengeful raids by the Riders on the Golden Wind.

The circle was drawn in the sand. The swords lay in the center. A two-handed Southron sword, with gold hilt and blued-steel blade. A two-handed Northern sword: silver-hilted, rune-bladed, singing its siren song of ice and death. A woman, standing near the circle. Waiting. White hair shining. Blue eyes calm. Gilded limbs relaxed. Waiting.
