The priestess Farangis and wandering minstrel Gieve have joined Prince Arslan in his quest to reclaim his kingdom. But these new additions are far from enough to stand up against the vast army of Lusitania and the nefarious scheming of the Man in the Silver Mask. Arslan must seek reinforcements from Kashan Fortress and is warmly greeted by its lord, Hodir, but Hodir's hospitality will come at a price. As the path to the royal throne stands before him, Arslan's principles will be put to the test and he will discover what it means to be a true king.
