"The war between magically gifted Arcana and psionically talented Sharona continues to rage. The dragon-borne Arcanan assault across five universes has been halted but at atrocious cost. One of those was the life of Crown Prince Janaki, heir to the newly created Sharonian empire, who went knowingly to his death. Another price will be the sacrifice of his younger sister, Grand Imperial Princess Andrin, now heir of Sharona. Andrin bears her family's Talent, the Glimpses, which show flashes of events yet to come. Meanwhile, far behind the front, a young Voice name Shaylar and her husband Jathmar hurtle deeper into Arcanan captivity, their only protection the fierce personal honor of the Andaran officer whose men massacred all their companions in the horrendous misunderstanding which began the entire conflict. The stakes are high and pieces are in motion but there are factors unknown not even to those pushing the war forward and not even a Calirath can Glimpse the final outcome"-- Provided by publisher.
