Amidst an historic natural calamity, four refugees struggle for survival. They endure flood, famine, outbreaks of irrational violence, but eventually reach the boundaries of a dying empire.
They are led by the merchant warrior, Waaloo, a seemingly sly opportunist the others do not fully trust. Is it his manner or foreign traditions?
The band also includes Parro, once in demand as a storyteller. She is still outspoken in a world increasingly turning against women.
Canni is a homeless priestess desperate to find her temple and sisters in some state of safety.
And Twi, the Twice-born Seeker, has been cast out of his privileged life to find that which is enduring, built upon a solid foundation and readily replicated. He is also a gifted magician and irritatingly introspective. Others mistake this for weakness.
The four are given a last chance - to deliver the 'Peace-bride' onto the battlefield between the desperate armies of antiquity's two greatest empires.
