The serial epic continues! Harker Aldreth may have made the ultimate sacrifice, but as Sudden, Sumei, and Trantz soon learn, the power of his memory only grows in his absence. New players enter the scene, eager to lay claim to Harker’s legacy in furtherance of their own causes. Meanwhile, Sumei finds herself in the clutches of a flamboyant pirate, Trantz attempts to escape into the Drift of his childhood, and Sudden seeks answers to a pair of questions that torment her in the wake of Harker’s fall: What use is the power of the gods if it couldn’t even save her brother? And why was she cursed with it?
