The city was captured by a rebellious lord, Palicrovol, who overthrew the cruel king, Nasilee, hated by his people.Palicrovol, too, was cruel, as befitted a king. He took the true mantle of kinghood by forcing Asineth, now queen by her fathers death, to marry him, raping her to consummate the marriage. But he was not cruel enough to rule. He let her live after her humiliation- live to bear a daughter, live to return from exile and retake the throne of Harts Hope.But she, in turn, sent Palicrovol into exile to breed a son who would, in the name of the God, take back the kingdom from its cruel queen.From the back cover of ISBN 0765306786 / 9780765306784
