With the Kingdom of the Isles at peace, Prince Arutha can at last look forward to marrying Princess Anita. But the capital harbors many shadows. When Jimmy, a young thief, upsets an assassination attempt on Arutha, a sinister plot is uncovered. As the dead rise and assassins stalk the darkness, Arutha must rally the Kingdom if he is to save his beautiful princess, felled by a poisoned arrow on her wedding day.
Another great read by fantasy writer Raymond E. Feist.
