Young Wasp is no rebel, but an orphan who came to Ironhall when his entire family was obliterated by savage Baelish pirates. Yet, at the sacred ceremony of binding, he follows the lead of his friend Raider-and together they spurn the wishes of King Ambrose himself. For there are obligations much more constraining than those of royal origin-and old, smoldering hatreds that require but a mere spark to burst once more into flame.
Now Raider and Wasp are outlaws to King and country-fugitives hunted by the very Blades whose ranks they were a breath away from entering-and joined together by a destiny that binds them more securely than any knot tradition and sorcery might tie. Amid the turmoil their "treachery" has inspired, Wasp and Raider must undertake a desperate journey into the heart of the dreaded Fire Lands. For the outcome of their terrifying confrontation with the dark truth and darker magic in this realm of monsters, ghosts, and half-men will ultimately determine the fate of two kingdoms.
