Winter is settling on the land, Uncle mather, but somehow, fittingly, it seems quiet and soft, as if the season will be gentle this year, as if Nature herself, like al the folk of the land, is in need of respite.
Except when the elves left him alone, for then came a hint of a red ire behind those blue orbs, a trait inherited not from his mother nor his father, but planted within the child, within Pony's womb, by the demon dactyl during her fist battle with Dalebert markwart, the corporeal vessel of Bestesbulzibar.
This is the third installment of Salvatore's Demon trilogy that starts with The Demon Awakens and The Demon Spirit.
Once again the demon dactyl of Corona seems defeated. Ranger Elbryan Wyndon goes north to protect the new settlers from goblins and powries, but his beloved Jilseponie returns to Palmaris. There Father Abbot Markwart is consolidating his power over Church and State with the aid of gemstone magic and the demon's power. Pony's determination to stop the evil abbots puts her and Elbryan in deadly peril, for even the king has been turned against them.
