"After the ruin, there is vengeance, when a woman's wrath turns a man into a monster. After the ruin, there is glory, when a bastard whelp is called unready to the kingship. After the ruin, there is betrayal, when a bargain is made to save a lover's life. After the ruin, there is despair, when a loving heart is twisted to jealousy and to destruction. Yet ruined lives go on, twisted and tangled as briars upon an apple tree, and so, even after the ruin, there is love, sweet as roses on a summer's evening. But love is such a little thing, no stronger than candleflame at noontime. For, after the ruin, Averla, fire made flesh, is hiding in the light. She will use lover against lover, sister against brother, father against son, to build again her kingdom of everlasting fire. Love is not enough to set against her fierce desire. As well seek to turn back the tide with a wall of sand."--Page 4 of cover.
