Battered and bruised, suffering grievous loss, the Company enters the great city of Instruere. They have to warn the Council of Faltha of the Destroyer's threat, and have no idea of the depth of treachery that awaits them. Bhudwo's tentacles go far deeper in to Faltha than any of the Company realises ...they find Instruere to be a city divided against itself, and the Watchers are nowhere to be found. Then the arrival of a disturbing stranger ignites the political and religious tensions in the city and events escalate beyond control. Only one thing could unite a land wracked with such mistrust. But can it be found? Or is the Jugom Ark merely a legend?
