After the days of the unspeakable, when the royal family was brutally murdered, Finnikin of the Rock has been searching. For home. Accompanied by the King’s First Man, Sir Topher, the two search for a new homeland for the massacred people of Lumatere.
That was before they met Evanjalin, who walks the sleeps of those trapped inside Lumatere. Who claims the heir to the kingdom still lives. Who is anything but what she seems.
But to return home, they must unite the exiles and break the curse — and find the heir, who is supposedly alive: Prince Balthazar.
