From the Inside Flap
ad come for rthe Deryni, the humans with strange, magical powers. The Regents of the boy-king Alroy sought their destruction. And now Bishop Alister Cullen was dead, depriving the Deryni of their greatest friend. But no one could be sure he was really dead. His body lay unchanged and incorruptible. As those questions remained unanswered, the effort to save Deryni had to continue. In the meanwhile, Camber's daughter Evaine pursued the most perilous quest of all--to find among ancient foribidden scrolls the spell that might release Camber.

This begins about a month after the last book in Kurtz's first early-era trilogy ("Camber the Heretic" in the Camber trilogy) ends.
The human regents of boy king Alroy are continuing to consolidate their power and pressing on with persecutions of anyone and anything Deryni. Prominent members of that magical race--most notably the surviving children, grandchildren, and other relatives of Saint Camber--are now in hiding, wondering what, if anything, they can do to reverse--or at least mitigate--this present catastrophe. Mourning the loss of her husband, eldest son, and father, Lady Evaine comes to suspect something incredible about her father, and with her brother Joram's help, begins to investigate whether her suspicion could possibly be true, and what, if anything, they can or should do if it is.
Young prince Javan, the king's twin and heir, struggles to keep his balance in a suddenly hostile court, where his pro-Deryni sympathies are decidedly unwelcome, and his growing Deryni-like powers can get him killed if they're discovered.
