The extraordinary story continues in this magnificent new installment of the bestselling Majipoor Chronicles, begun with Lord Valentine's Castle.
Dark dreams disturb Lord Valentine's sleep, a forewarning of the danger that threatens the peace of Majipoor. The Shapeshifters have set in motion a terrifying plan to regain their stolen world and their allies, the ancient gods rising from their eons-long slumber beneath the oceans of the great planet. Suddenly, Valentine faces the greatest crisis of his reign. Either he must plunge Majipoor into a bloody nightmare of war, plague, and chaos, or surrender his life to the mercy of the vengeful Shapeshifters.
"A virtuoso performance by Silverberg, in which details of natural history become symbolic threads in a colorful tapestry on the themes of maturity, responsibility, and natural process."-New York Newsday
