The bird will rise…
The flames will burn.
Prince Ivan and Mar’ya Morevna live a life of ease. Their household is in perfect order, and Ivan is learning more each day studying the Art Magic.
But all of that is about to change.
In Germany, a Holy Christian order of Teutonic knights sets their sights on the Rus. While overtly condemning them for their use of sorcery, citing witchcraft and blasphemy, Hermann von Salza, Grandmaster of the Order, secretly covets the power these magics can give him. He calls for the aid of Baba Yaga, who’s simmering hatred and desire for revenge against Prince Ivan make her a sensible, if revolting, ally.
Baba Yaga bends to her service a Firebird, cruelly misusing the noble creature, while Ivan gains a companion in the shape of a Grey Wolf.
Across the Rus, gruesome deeds and warnings are being carried out and no one can figure out how the deeds are done – or who is committing them…
Can Ivan and Mar’ya figure out who is targeting them?
Will they survive the plotting, and in doing so, be able to save the Rus?
