Synopsis ~

Write-up from back of both tradepaper and paperback editions ~

Pilgrims, sorcerers, thieves, nobles, scryers, glass-blowers, horse-leeches, wizards, beggars, merchants, priests. At Ithkar stands the Temple of the Three Lordly Ones, who vanished four hundred years ago. Now, once a year, the faithful come to pray for their return. With the faithful come the wicked, the innocent, the sorceress, the doomed, the greedy, and the hopeful, they all find more than they expect.
