...a shadow may cast a man as often as a man casts a shadow...
On a barren world, a wheel of fire rolls across the sky, dropping tears of flame that turn into creatures of fear... A den of dragons brings to trial a killer of their kind... Dark rituals and exotic secrets allow a woman to create the perfect man... An apprentice omensetter learns that, sometimes, the signs will point to him... And beneath the desert sands a hungry spirit thirsts for blood...
