Publisher's Summary

Alashar is one of many assassins sent against the archwizard Shadow, only she is slightly more successful than most, managing to kill one of the Shadow’s simulacra before she is magically paralyzed and sent to his demiplane. But before Shadow utters the final incantation that would send her there, she manages to break out of his spell long enough to drag him along with her. Once there, they work together to get back to the Material Plane, and Shadow begins to respect the young assassin, especially once it is revealed that she is being used by his rival archwizard Grenway, against whom they move together.
