Once a princess of Leithe, Lorelei was exiled from her homeland and led to the city of Dunvarak in the tundra of Rimian. The people of Dunvarak call her Light of Madra, and nearly every one of them has a story about the white hand of light who saved them from death during the War of Silence.
She is their savior, and being a savior is no small task.
Charged with retrieving the fractured horns of the U'lfer god, Llorveth, from a long-dead dragon's treasure hoard in the belly of Great Sorrow's Peak, the half-bred U'lfer believe with the horns in hand they will finally be able to embrace the dormant wolf and rise to stand beside their full-blooded brethren in the coming war with men.
But there is more to Lorelei's plight than simply retrieving the mystical horns of a silent god. She and her companions - Finn, an U'lfer warrior she shares a mate bond with, and a half-Alvarii mage named Brendolowyn - have made this journey before, and unless they can figure out where they went wrong in past cycles, time threatens to repeat itself for eternity.
