The island kingdom of Saros trembles on the edge of annihilation. Raiders harry the coast, ports are burned, and in the capital King Alifieri keeps a fearful truce with the ambassador of the mighty Linyati Empire.
But Gareth Radnor, prisoner of the king, knows that the current skirmishes are but the prelude to a full-scale invasion of Saros. Gareth alone knows the true nature of the enemy, and it is he who must lead the Corsairs of Saros in one last, desperate, strike at the heart of an implacable foe.
