When Jack Deveraux betrays their race, the woman who loves him flees, swearing that she will never return. Having his child makes hating him all the more difficult, but in three years’ time she has to return to the land of the magic-users: The Ciribue. Cordelia Keppel has to discover what pushed Jack over the edge and caused him to create the masochistic King Scipio. Can she really trust the Ciribue? Or was Jack’s war all just a misunderstanding?
Told through the present and a series of flashbacks from both Cordelia’s and Jack’s perspectives, the truth just might be unveiled.
