Great Harry is dead, and England is ruled by a dour
Protector for 10-year-old Edward VI┬┐-a Protector intent on
keeping total control over the young king and no friend to
Lady Elizabeth because of her brother┬┐s fondness for her.
In the great lens and the dark pool that hold Visions for
the FarSeers of the Bright Court and the Dark, the images
change and waver. A pale, thin girl sometimes wears a
crown and sometimes has no head; King Edward and his Court
grow misty as he changes from boy to stripling. But the
fires of Mary┬┐s reign still burn bright as they swallow
writhing men, women, and children, and if she ever reigns
the red-haired queen brings a burgeoning of art and joy.
Elimination of that last possibility for England is Vidal
Dhu┬┐s prime purpose, but he has been forbidden by King
Oberon to attack Elizabeth. Though he may not attack her
directly, still he hatches schemes within schemes. And if
his plan to involve the young princess in a scandal that
would render her unfit to rule in the opinion of the
Proctor and his Council, he has more twisted plans to
eliminate Elizabeth once and for all.
