Michelle Sagara West doesn’t watch much television these days because she’s still in mourning for “Firefly.” That said, she watches the DVDs on a semiregular basis and has traumatized other new viewers by forgetting to mention that the series was cancelled when she loans the set out. She can talk about “Firefly” for hours on end. And sometimes, she talks to the right people (see, editor). She is also a novelist who has eight published novels as Michelle West and four novels originally published as Michelle Sagara, which will be reprinted by BenBella Books, one every six months, starting in September 2005.

The harrowing tale of Erin of Elliath, warrior and healer, continues in this episode of the battle between good and evil. When Erin rejects her position as Lady Sara, wife to the First Servant of the Dark Heart, she escapes from her husband’s realm with the help of Darin, the Patriarch of Culverne and the last of his line. After combining forces with the deposed prince of Marantine and a mysterious old man—who has magic skills that neither Erin or Darin can identify—the foursome hatch a plan to wrestle control of the usurped kingdom of Marantine away from the priests of the Dark Heart. Meanwhile, Erin continues to struggle with her part in the betrayal of her people, the deaths of her most beloved friends, as well as her feelings for the man who doomed them for her sake.
