While Civil War rages in Amethir and the eastern nations war with each other, one angry young woman makes a discovery with the power to change the world.
Civil war rages on the high seas and inland in the Amethirian Empire. Dragons are speaking again. Stormsingers are being ambushed by seadragons and sirens. The weather itself is being manipulated by ambitious stormwitches on both sides of the conflict.
In the midst of the maelstrom, a captive princess sends a plea to Ranarr.
Send us a Diplomat.
In the Ranarri Diplomat training program, one young trainee chafes under the strict requirements for equanimity and impassivity. Naia Sedorr believes anger is just as useful as calm rationality, but her best friend—and their teachers—disagree. Refusing to question her place in the Diplomat Training, Naia resolves to discover something that will bring the warring nations of Strid and Tamnen to the negotiation table.
Instead, Naia's discovery may remake the entire world.
