Geran, a swordmage just settling back in at home after his exile from the elven city of Myth Drannor, finds Hulburg's merchants under assault by pirates. The angry merchants put the burden on the harmach to protect them -- or else.
Kamoth Kastelmar, high captain of the Black Moon Corsairs, returns from his exile to wreak havoc on Hulburg, working with Geran's enemies to strike when she lies defenseless in the boldest pirate raid in the history of the Moonsea.
It will take every ounce of cunning and courage Geran possesses to stay ahead of those who plot against Hulburg and House Hulmaster—but will it be enough? Forced to abandon his family in Hulburg to track the infamous pirate who threatens his home, Geran's obsession with the enemy he knows may leave him blind to a darker, more devious threat closer to home.
