Garard has devoted his life to alleviating traumas for Lord Metz and the royal family.
First, the death of Metz’ wife and son in child-birth. Then, Metz’ second marriage to a self-absorbed woman who plays wicked step-mother to Metz’ beloved first daughter, Jaym.
Most recently, the threat of war with Lord Roark, averted only by the promise of a marriage between Roark and Jaym.
But the bride is kidnapped the day before the wedding!
Garard recovers the girl. But his investigation reveals the reality of the don, a mythical native race and the reeth, Pegasus-like mind-mates of the don.
The fear? After four hundred years of hiding, what do don and reeth want with humans now?
