Dark and deadly, a mysterious man stalks the halls of Castle Calon, staying forever hidden. He calls himself the Redeemer. And no one has seen his face. Not even Morwenna, lady of the keep.
A bloodied warrior is brought to the castle. He is battered, nearly unrecognizable. And yet Morwenna sees that he resembles Carrick of Wybren, the man who stole her virginity and broke her heart. Is he friend or foe? Lover or enemy? Can she trust him--or will he only bring terror and death to her keep?
As the days pass and/he unknown soldier revives, Morwenna senses that together they will face a new peril. For the Redeemer is moving now, evermore stealthily--and in his wake comes destiny, desire, and death.
