Young Annat Vasilyevich is a youthful shaman and an outcast Wanderer. No longer her father's apprentice, she watches enviously as he sets out into enemy territory with his new pupil, Huldis of Ademar, and their companions.
War has come to Lefranu and while Annat remains to defend the merchant city of Yonar, her father has claimed the most dangerous mission for himself. None of them realise that their world of steam and machines is about to be shattered from an attack by the most deadly of enemies - the mediaeval Duc de Malarat and his ally, the twisted but beautiful Inquisitor, Valdes de Siccaria. Someone has set loose an ancient demon known only to the Wanderers, and in order to defeat it and win the war, they will have to make a terrible sacrifice...
