This spellbinding novel relates the fortunes of Clennen and his family, itinerant musicians who travel the lanes of Dalemark. With warring earldoms and spies everywhere, few people move between the North and South, so the musicians often carry news. When violence overtakes them, the family's fate and the mysterious Kialan's are bound together in terror and flight.

At the age of eight Diana knew she was going to be a writer, it was as though someone tapped her on the shoulder and told her so. She started writing books and reading them to her sisters. Then she moved on to study at Oxford, where she met her future husband who encouraged her to attend the lectures of both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Diana is an outstanding writer of fantasy and the Dalemark Quartet books are good for readers who have enjoyed the Christopher Chant books by the same author. Diana lives in Bristol, with her husband and three children.Review:
