In the land of monsters, you'll want her by your side. Nyrielle Tam - better known by her code name, Thorn - is a Dark Lantern sent undercover to a summit in the monstrous kingdom of Droaam. The beasts of Droaam have organized and want recognition from the kingdoms of Khorvaire. Breland attends to gauge its neighbors' reaction to the new state's demands of equality... and to take the opportunity to recover something long ago stolen by the mysterious Sheshka, Queen of the Medusas. It's up to Thorn to accomplish both, while keeping her King and Country out of war. The creator of the world of Eberron returns with a series that shows off Eberron's cross-genre capabilities - all the smarts and action of a spy thriller, with the magic and depth of world only fantasy can create. There's something here for every fan!
