Timeline Points:

  1. p251. Story set in Escore after opening with Estcarp.
  2. p255. "…campaigning for three years solid…"
  3. p256. Escore's best hope since the Tregarths - Trugemma sat with Kyllan in council.


Sorcerer's Notes:
Trugemma mentions she's been fighting the Dark for the last 3 years, so this takes place 3 years after the Tregarth triplets entered Escore. (see: Three Against the Witch World) That would probably also place this sometime shortly before the conclusion of The Gate of the Cat where the Dark has been mostly cleansed from Escore.


The Sorcerer’s recommend that you read next: Ciara's Song
