War spreads in this, the second book, of the epic fantasy series The Elemental Staff. The Empire secures its foothold; losses thus far suffered are lighter than could have been hoped for. Yet regrettably, the same cannot be said for honour. By blockading the passes of the divide, the Far Western Province is cut off from the rest of the land. As the clouds of war sweep north and south, consuming what remains of the province, the defenders gather their strength and fortify the passes. The Empire has a plan for victory; its execution has been ordered. Though as capable and brave as any in the land, the defenders of the South Pass leave one flank unguarded, the east, their rear, wherein the blade of betrayal is driven. A breach is opened, as war embroils the edge of the Western Province. While the city of Melarsh is threatened with encirclement, Empire forces thrust northward. Prince Joral, only son of King Marlais, leads a hastily assembled army westward. Their flank threatened; the defenders of the remaining passes are forced to fall back onto the one easily defendable position in the province. Hurriedly, the city of Willont is fortified to withstand the Empire advance. A victory here would shine as a beacon for the defenders of the land. Yet, as the clouds of war sweep eastward, can any beacon?s light truly be seen?
