But Jagellion–and his former advisor Mindaug and Mindaug’s current leash-holder, Elizabeth Bartoldy–have other plans for them.Prince Vlad of Vahalia, descendant of the legendary Vlad Dracul, would just like to not die. Elizabeth has plans for him as well.Unfortunately for the scheming of Elizabeth, Mindaug, and Jagellion–the very Carpathian Mountains have entirely different plans for all of them. The Oldest of Old magic is alive and well there. Blood calls to blood; the blood of the king and the blood of the land are one.
