In the world of the Four Realms, power lies in the hands of the Undying. These few men and women are immortal mages of rare strength. But what does it cost a person to live the length of many lifetimes and see friend after friend die?In the West, Lord Paelan has held sway in Rath for twelve-hundred years. As ill-tempered as he is principled, his attempts to maintain the greatness of his country are hobbled by its Constitution and the squabbling of the nobles.In the North, Chancellor Vaczir of Kassua has ruled the Land of Fire and Frost for a thousand years. Ruthless in the pursuit of power and knowledge, he watches and waits, the weight of a technocratic regime behind him.In the East, Their Excellencies Isaah and Nyreni act as advisers to the empresses of Jehar. In reality, the two sisters rule in their stead. For six centuries they have worked tirelessly to raise the Empire up and rival their neighbours to the north and west.And in the South? In the South live the enigmatic people of Keln. But they have no Undying to rival the other realms, for, of course, common-knowledge has it that there are only four immortals.Except that common knowledge is wrong: there is a fifth.
