Moril looked at the six men. Each wore a sword in a leather scabbard, and he did not like the way the hilts looked smooth with frequent use. Clennen and his family earn their living as wandering musicians, travelling to the towns of Dalemark in their colorful cart. With warring earldoms and spies everywhere, few move between North and South, and Clennen often carries news, and somethimes a passenger. Who is the mysterous Kialan who has joined them on this journey? Is he connected to the sudden violence that overtakes them on their travels? When Moril, Brid and Dagner are left to carry out Clennen's instructions, their fate and Kialan's are bound together in terror and flight and music, for the songs of Dalemark mean more than they say.
