'Robin Hobb is a remarkable storyteller' Guardian

The Speck plague has decimated the ranks of the King's Cavella Academy. Those who survived the epidemic will never completely recover and many cadets have been forced to return to their families to face lives of disappointment and dependency. Far from being a broken man, Cadet Nevare Burvelle is unusually healthy after his convalescence and, as other cadets begin their final journey home with heavy hearts, he prepares to return to Widevale in high spirits, simply to visit and attend his brother's wedding.

Now that Nevare has freed himself of the Speck magic that endeavoured to turn him against his own people, a bright future awaits him. But the plague has infected him in ways far more mysterious than the merely physical. The Speck magic in his blood is dormant for now, but will roar to life and he will realise that his most dangerous enemy, an enemy that seeks to destroy all he loves, might dwell within him.
'Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers... what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics.' The Times
The second book in the brand new trilogy from the author of the Tawny Man trilogy, following on from the bestselling Shaman's Crossing.

The King's Cavalla Academy has been ravaged by the Speck plague.

The disease has decimated the ranks of both cadets and instructors, and even the survivors remain sickly. Many have been forced to relinquish their military ambitions and return to their families to face lives of dependency and disappointment. As the Academy infirmary empties, Cadet Nevare Burvelle also prepares to journey home, to attend his brother Rosse's wedding. Far from being a broken man, Nevare is hale and hearty after his convalescence. He has defeated his nemesis, Tree Woman and freed himself of the Speck magic that infected him and attempted to turn him against his own people. A bright future awaits him as a commissioned officer betrothed to a beautiful young noblewoman.

Yet his nights are still haunted by dreams of the voluptuous Tree Woman, dreams in which his Speck self betrays everything he holds dear in his waking life. Has the plague infected him in ways far more mysterious than the merely physical?

Despite his fears, Nevare will journey back to Widevale in high spirits, in full expectation of a jubilant homecoming and a tender reunion with his beautiful fiancee, Carsina. But his life is about to take a shocking turn, as the magic in his blood roars to life and forces him to recognize that his most dangerous enemy, an enemy that seeks to destroy all he loves, might dwell within him.
