This is a brief prologue to the novella, The Mantis King. The prologue gives background information that, though not essential to the novella, provides details for the interested reader. We learn some of the history of Wizards and Norns, as well as that of Nivian, the Lady of the Lake. We also learn of the creation of the invincible army of the Green Warrior Women.

A wonderful read! Beautiful imagery, and very charming. Mr. Weber's writing style is very charming and witty, and I was thoroughly enjoyed throughout this prologue.
This was a great way to introduce us to some of the themes and characters in the next book, "The Mantis King".
