Winter is here again, and once more the City of Turai is as cold as the Ice Queen's grave. Makri, still determined to continue her education, complains about the Guild College being closed, but Thraxas has no greater ambition than to sit in front of a warm fire, drinking beer.

Against his will, Thraxas is drafted onto the war council, where he would be content to show his skill at the dinner table, until a senior member of the government is murdered. Thraxas finds himself dragged unwillingly into an investigation. That would be stressful enough, without Makri transforming his private office into a classroom offering literacy lessons to the poorest women in the city.

Another solid book from Scott. The central mystery is pleasingly simple at its core, but puzzling enough to be interesting. The increasing depth of the women's movement in Turai, and their increasing contact with Thraxas, adds more layers - the abrasiveness and self-righteousness of both sides makes for some entertaining conflicts.
