Flamesong by M. A. R. Barker

Description: Tekumel is a world distant in time and space, populated by humans and bizarre alien races, and whose dominant empire is that of Tsolyanu — the Empire of the Petal Throne. Tekumel is a world more detailed than even Tolkien's Middle-Earth or Herbert's Dune, with cultures and societies far-removed from the traditional quasi-medieval Europe of most fantasy.

In this novel, a young officer in an Imperial legion captures a high-ranking woman of an enemy power, but in the process is drawn into a transcontinental journey. The woman woman possesses a weapon powerful enough to threaten the rulers of the Empire. The young lieutenant, Trinesh hiKetkolel, can make his career and save a Prince, if he can just get her home...

Also in this series are The Man of Gold, Lords of Tsamra, Prince of Skulls, A Death of Kings Return to the M. A. R. Barker page.
