Summary
"Civil war on the world of the atevi is finally over. And Cajeiri, son and heir to Tabini-aiji, atevi leader of the dominant Western Association is about to celebrate his fortunate ninth birthday. Bren Cameron, brilliant human diplomat allied with Tabini, has managed to arrange a visit for Cajeiri's three special associates from the starship Phoenix--ordinary human children who developed a bond with Cajeiri during his two years in space. After a year of political upheaval, this is a happy event: the heir is safe, the aiji is back in power, and a massive celebration is planned in the capital. The whole world is watching. The human children, now on land for the first time in their lives, are entranced. There is weather, and trees, and alien creatures with minds of their own, and their important host is quite pleased. This is what Cajeiri has dreamed of. But Bren Cameron has received evidence that security has been severely compromised from the aiji's high office on downward. The powerful Assassins's Guild--which provides the judicial system, law enforment, and personal protection in atevi society--is in the hands of a man who would like to turn the entire world back two centuries. This man is hostile to humans and hostile to the current human-friendly and technology-friendly administration. He resides in the heart of the Assassins' Guild Headquarters--the most closely guarded fortress in the atevi world. Bren now knows the details of a decades-old plot that's been threaded through Guild actions since before his arrival on the continent. The enemy's best chance is to strike now, at the public celebration that is much too important and far too advanced to cancel. Bren and his associates have no choice. If they don't make the first move, the other side will. And the lives of the heir, his innocent human guests, and the entire ruling family are at stake." --
