Crossing the wide realms of the Faerûn in search of adventure, the dark elf princess Liriel Baenre and her companion Fyodor find themselves in the barbarian’s homeland of Rashemen. In a land ruled by witches, Liriel must disguise herself lest she spark the people’s hatred of dark elves.
Yet from the deep tunnels of the Underdark, eyes glittering with malice are watching her every move, preparing for vengeance.
