Urdaisunia was once the greatest civilization in the world. But now it lies in ruins, conquered by the barbarian Sazars, wracked by plague and famine, and threatened by enemies from all sides.
Rashali, a widowed Urdai peasant, has vowed to destroy the Sazars and restore her land to greatness, even if it means sacrificing her own life.
Prince Eruzasharbat, heir to the Sazar throne, walks a dangerous line between loyalty and treason in order to do what is best for all the people of Urdaisunia.
The gods, who once favored Urdaisunia above all other lands, cannot agree on who should be allowed to rule the land – the Sazars or the Urdai, or another ruler chosen by war. While they argue, Urdaisunia and its people are dying.
Then a chance meeting between Rashali and Prince Eruz leads to a wager between two of the gods, and sends peasant and prince on intertwining paths of danger, intrigue, love, and war – paths that will change their destinies, the destiny of Urdaisunia, and even the fate of the gods, forever.
