Bitter Enemis, the nations of Deva and Vashti shared no history, no customs, no laws. They all worshipped the horse-god Suth, but the rituals and magic's of one people were the heresies of the other. Two nations that shared only one thing--the curse of the Nameless One. A demonic hatred that could destroy the lands of Suth. Now three people must confront the Nameless One. Prince Kyrem of Deva: young warrior, master of the great stallion Omber, and a hostage to peace. King Auron of Vashti: last of his line, a pacifist magician and healer bound by his land, trapped by his priesthood. And Seda: an orphan born lower than a slave, with no past, no future, not true name, no hope--but bearer of an unknown legacy, and an unknowable destiny. To survive, they would have to find the love and magic to challenge the hatred of generations. And to save their world, they would have to find the strength to battle history, heaven and hell.
