To the hall with six flames
Call the great of the nine
For an heir to the king.
They will seek for a sign.
Who should rule the powerful land of Jaryar when its childless king dies? Instead of preparing for war, the two contenders agree to that extraordinary thing, an election.
“A contest? A duel? A game of chess?”
“Yes, perhaps. A fair game.”
Fifty-one high-ranking men and women will hear the arguments, and then choose between Queen Nerranya of Marod and Duke Haras of Vard.
So everyone comes to the peaceful city of Vach-roysh, capital of the land that gave up its independence long ago – the Tenth Province of Jaryar.
They bring their prejudice and ambition, bribery and blackmail – and the prophecy uttered by a dying woman.
And murder. For this game is far from fair.
Bowing down to be raised
For the Dream, and God’s law –
But the sheep, they all wait
For mild peace or grim war.
