From the Inside Flap
IN THE TOWER
The power-hungry former Regents of the three Haldane princes were pleased. They controlled Gwynedd once more, now that Rhys Michael was king--malleable, wine-loving, and soft. Or so they thought...
Unbeknownst to the Regents, Rhys Michael was coming into his birthright. With secret Deryni aid, he struggled to grasp the magic bequeathed to all anointed kings. And when Marek--heir to Gwynedd's last degenerate deposed Deryni despots--marched into Gwynedd at the head of an army, even the Regents had to admit that Rhys Michael must take to the field himself as king to repel the pretender.
Rhys Michael saw his chance at last. He swore that the power of the throne--from now on and for all time to come--was to be held by Gwynedd's rightful king. For this, for his sons, and for his country, the king would risk all...

It's now 6 years since King Rhys Michael Haldane took the throne after the murder of his brother and he's just as much a prisoner of his great lords now as he was in the beginning, perhaps even more so, as the great lords now have control of 4-year-old Prince Owain as well as the young king and queen. Trouble is also brewing on Gwynedd's eastern border with Torenth, where a rival to Rhys Michael's throne (Marek of Festil) is still sheltered; a rival now making moves to steal back the crown his parents once held, for himself and for his own infant son.
An attack by Marek and his brother-in-law Prince Miklos of Torenth on an Earl loyal to King Rhys means that the king himself must respond to the threat, however little his great lords like this chance for the king to have a taste of freedom and even the appearance of independent action. But regardless of the personal danger, King Rhys has no choice but to seize all the opportunities presented and allies he encounters to secure the freedom of Gwynedd's throne from the control of the great lords. Whether those new allies and old ones long hidden can protect the king from the menace of his great lords, so that he can see his wife and heir again, and meet the unborn son his queen now carries, is something that no one can know.
