Synopsis

For generations, the Palindrake family of Caradore have been cut off from their spiritual source, Foy the Sea Dragon Queen, since their ancestor Valraven I and his family were conquered and subjugated by the Emperor Cassilin of Magrast, follower of Madragore, the pitiless god of fire. The Palindrakes' connection to the powers of the sea was lost, remembered only in songs and legends, and the name of each male heir: Valraven. Now, most men of the Caradorean families are sent away to war, to fight for the current emperor, Leonid, who is known only as a family friend to the Palindrakes--their sorry history is mostly forgotten by those who now live in the pale castle beside the thrashing ocean.

But the sea dragons live on in the hearts of the Caradorean people, especially the women, and when Pharinet Palindrake's twin brother Valraven is sent to Magrast to join the emperor's army, events are set in motion that will revive magics long forgotten, as well as enmities, passions and fears.

The sea dragon Foy is not a gentle entity, and once roused, her terrifying daughters are unleashed upon the world. How can a people estranged from these powerful spiritual influences reclaim their dominion over the elements, while illicit obsessions wreak havoc between the ruling families, bringing death and ruin to ancient houses? Will it be down to a daughter of fire, the princess Varencienne, brought as a wife to Caradore, to help her newfound people retrieve what is theirs and bring the sea dragon heir, Valraven, back to the might of the ocean and its strange, unearthly denizens?

The dragon queen and her daughters demand a high price, and only the strongest may pay it.
