The word is out upon the land: Young Marwen has vanquished the dragon Perdoneg. Minstrels carry her name to the farthest corners of Ve, transforming her lyrically into the heir to the wizard's staff. But her transformation is not yet complete; the staff is not yet in hand. And danger lurks more closely than she dares believe. The wizard's staff is sought by another whose past is intertwined with Marwen's. And what's more, he holds the dreadful power of the Prism Moon to which Marwen finds herself inexorably drawn.
