Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a world where magic is derived from the art of wine-making…a Vineart comes into the fullness of his power as evil forces threaten to destroy everything he holds dear.

Jerzy, Vineart apprentice and former slave, was sent by his master to investigate strange happenings—and found himself the target of betrayal. By Jerzy’s side are Ao, who lives for commerce and the art of the deal; Mahault, stoic and wise, risking death in flight from her homeland; and KaÏnam, once Named-Heir of an island principality, whose father has fallen into a magic-tangled madness that endangers them all.

     These four companions will travel far from the earth and the soul of the vine, sailing along coastlines aflame with fear, confronting sea creatures summoned by darkness, and following winds imbued with malice. Their journey will take them to the very limits of the Sin Washer’s reach…and into a battle for the soul of the Lands Vin. For two millennia the Sin Washer’s Commandment has kept these lands in order: Those of magic shall hold no power over men and those princes of power shall hold no magic. Now, that law has given way. And a hidden force seeks the havoc of revenge.

Synopsis:

MAGIC MAKES THE MAN. THEN THE MAN MAKES MAGIC. . . .

Two clashing forces drawn into a sorcerous duel: Nebula Award nominee Laura Anne Gilman spins the riveting conclusion to her “dramatic” (Publishers Weekly) fantasy series of vine, earth, and deceit.

T wo thousand years ago, a demigod split the world between Vinearts and men of power, setting his heirs, the Washers, to guard the balance. But even gods fail, and now the Lands Vin are wracked by rumor, revolt, and inexplicable violence. Vineart Jerzy must track the source, accompanied by the only three people he trusts: a trader crippled by a sea monster, a young woman without a place, and a prince who abandoned his people. They have their enemy’s name, and they know his plan. What they don’t know is how to stop him. And with unrest increasing daily, Jerzy must delve deeper into forbidden magic, luring his unknown enemy into the open. Because in a world where everyone knows their place, only a former slave is free to act. . . .
