Enter the city of Hart’s Hope in the realm of Burland, ruled by gods both powerful and indifferent, riddled with sorcery and revenge. The city was captured by a rebellious lord, Palicrovol, who overthrew the cruel king, Nasilee, hated by his people. And Palicrovol, too, was cruel, as befitted a king. He took the mantle of kinghood by forcing Asineth, now queen by her father’s death, to marry him, raping her to consummate the marriage.

But by letting her live after her humiliation, he proved he was not cruel enough to rule. She lived to bear a daughter, to return from exile, and to retake the throne of Hart’s Hope. Then she, in turn, sent Palicrovol into exile to breed a son who would, in the name of the gods, take back the kingdom from its cruel queen.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Barbara | 3/26/2011

    " Actually I read an Italian translation from Urania Fantasy (no ISBN - that was 1988/1989)... the sci-fi translations of this company weren't so good, so I'm afraid the one I read doesn't honor "Uncle Orson". Will have to read it again in original version! "

    " I wanted it to continue, I hoped there would be at least another chapter when I had only afew pages left. All out a good read, and still a faithful OSC fan. "

    " I usually really enjoy Orson Scott Card, but found this book just a little too strange for my taste. "

    " Read it in the mid/early 2000s. Don't remember much except that I liked it, and that it was set in a the old pagan times. "
