Now, Dain and his hated rival, Prince Gavril, must undertake a prilous quest to find the one thing that can save her - the Chalice of Eternal Life, the powerful relic that Dain´s own father lost his life trying to hide from mortal hands.
It will be a journey shadowed by treachery and death - as Dain confronts old enemies, and finds an important new ally in the rebel leader Alexieka...
