       Additional Information  
      An inept monarch; a double brace of scheming siblings; a mannered, stratified society; and a long, cold winter are the background for this drama of duality. Would-be poet Valemar, a young courtier, is entangled by his cousin Narrion in murder and intrigue and is soon further entangled in old deceptions and new war with the city-state Etrara's rival nation, the Shai. Surrounded by duplicity and forced to conceal himself, his resilient adaptability becomes an asset in a polarized world. Tightly plotted and plainly told, this novel furnishes better meat than most trilogies.
