In this concluding volume of the two-part Sarantine Mosaic, Guy Gavriel Kay brilliantly merges his dramatic homage to Byzantine with a moving meditation on art and power, and the eternal human struggle to leave a legacy.

Sarantium is the golden city: holy to the faithful, jewel of the world. The western mosaicist Crispin has arrived in the glittering capital to begin work inside a grand sanctuary. Confronting the challenges of his art high on the scaffolding of destiny, he discovers that no one can withdraw from the dangerous affairs of court and city.

Reluctantly, he finds himself drawn into a web of intrigue--to discover that his own path will have to go far beyond that of a healer.
