Having governed his immense empire peacefully for many years, he prepares to give his lovely daughter Samilia away to her official suitor, the Prince of the Lands of Salt. The streets outside the palace are filled with rose petals and gold cloth hangs from every window. But on the eve of the wedding, a lone, mysterious rider appears instead to claim Samilia's hand. Within days, two great nations prepare for a senseless conflict over a beautiful woman; and an old, sad King looks on as his world and his family fall apart."--BOOK JACKET." ;
