Synopsis

The Emperor of Hebalon dies a dramatic death, taking a terrible legacy with him to the grave. It is widely feared that the Zeriths, the Hebalonian's arch-enemies, have fanned new heat into the embers of the muderous enmity that has existed between the two nations from time immemorial.
 
Martial law is declared, and the heavy gates in the city of Hebalon are locked firm. No outsider can gain entrance. The Emperor's young and untried son, Hal Tara, who is now the heir apparent to the throne, is charged with avenging his father's death. But Hal is unaware that his kingdom is threatened from within, where traitorous and malevolent elements are planning to overthrow him.
 
Hal manges to gain access to the Zerith camp, but he is no longer so sure who is friend, and who is foe. As Hal gradually starts to come of age as a warrior, he falls deeply and passionately in love - a love that proves to be as blind and unreasoning as hatred itself.
 
It will take a moment of revelation before he is finally able to distinguish between his true friends and his true enemies. But it still remains to re-establish peace and justice in the land. A major new war is brewing, but battle-lines are unclear - and behind lose lines there are both friends and enemies.
