The novel is set in the holy city of Tova and takes place during the winter solstice, which this year coincides with an eclipse, a rare celestial event described by the Sun Priest as an unbalancing of the world. In the meantime, a ship sets out from a distant city headed for Tova and is expected to arrive during the eclipse. The captain of the ship, Xiala, is a disgraced Teek whose song can calm the waters around her, just as easily as it can warp a man’s mind. The only other passenger aboard Xiala’s ship is a young, scared, blind man. But as Xiala knows all too well, when a man is described as harmless, he usually ends up being a villain.
