Two babies are lost in the hostile country of Ganluc—-one the firstborn son of a prince and princess (third in line for the Throne) and the other a half-breed born to a slave and fathered by a marquis who was executed for treason. Duke Vahn is determined to rescue both boys. When all else fails, Vahn sends a strange trio off to search—his brave captain, a middle-aged healer, and an Itzi slave.
