As a fresh insurrection brews in Briga, Lady Caitlin d’Orr, a Zon military officer finds herself at the trial of Nitya, a young barbarian girl accused of being a witch and sentenced to death. Shocked to find her superiors unsympathetic to the plight of the girl, she disobeys orders and defies official Zon policy.
Pursued by the barbarians as well as the Zon, Caitlin meets and befriends Greghar, a mysterious barbarian with secrets of his own.

For treachery has raised its head from within the Zon Sisterhood itself. As the barbarians gain early and unprecedented victories, the Zon desperately try to maintain their grip on their adopted planet and their way of life…
