內容簡介


甫獲2016年Arthur C. Clarke奇/科幻類大獎的Children of Time作者Adrian Tchaikovsky另一本奇幻小說佳作。混血女英雄Maniye將面對什麼樣的試煉,以彌平兩個部族間的仇恨?

Maniye的父親是狼族首領,但她卻被排除在外,只因她的母親是虎族女王,而狼虎兩族成為世仇已有好幾代的時間。兩族人可幻化為本身所屬族類的動物型態,而Maniye既可變成狼,也可變為虎,這是她攸關生死、不為人知的一個秘密。由於拒絕放棄兩者當中的任何一個靈魂,Maniye不得不逃跑,在逃亡的過程中,她救了一個狼族囚犯的性命。殺手Broken Axe啟程追蹤他們的下落,以便逮捕他們歸案並接受懲罰。

狼族首領密謀控制北方,而控制他的女兒就是他計畫中非常重要的一部分。然而,其他部族也為衝突做好了準備,來自遙遠南方的陌生人也在衝突中尋求盟友。預兆之季已然來臨,祭司們預示了危險與籠罩整個大地的黑暗。有人說,大戰即將來臨,使狼族的野心黯然無光。試煉的時間到了,破除律法近在咫尺,使世界重見光明的到底是什麼?

"In the bleak northern crown of the world, war is coming"

Maniye's father is the Wolf clan's chieftain, but she's an outcast. Her mother was queen of the Tiger and these tribes have been enemies for generations. Maniye also hides a deadly secret. All can shift into their clan's animal form, but Maniye can take on tiger and wolf shapes. She refuses to disown half her soul so escapes, rescuing a prisoner of the Wolf clan in the process. The killer Broken Axe is set on their trail, to drag them back for retribution.

The Wolf chieftan plots to rule the north and controlling his daughter is crucial to his schemes. However, other tribes also prepare for strife. Strangers from the far south appear too, seeking allies in their own conflict. It's a season for omens as priests foresee danger and a darkness falling across the land. Some say a great war is coming, overshadowing even Wolf ambitions. A time of testing and broken laws is near, but what spark will set the world ablaze?
