Summary
In the great kingdom of Quandis, everyone is a slave. Some are slaves to the gods. Most are slaves to everyone else. Blessed by the gods with lives of comfort and splendor, the royal elite routinely perform their duties, yet some chafe at their role. A young woman of stunning ambition, Princess Phela refuses to allow a few obstacles-- including her mother the queen and her brother, the heir apparent-- stand in the way of claiming ultimate power and glory for herself. Far below the royals are the Bajuman. Poor and oppressed, members of this wretched caste have but two paths out of servitude: the priesthood... or death. Because magic has been kept at bay in Quandis, royals and Bajuman have lived together in an uneasy peace for centuries. But Princess Phela's desire for power will disrupt the realm's order, setting into motion a series of events that will end with her becoming a goddess in her own right... or ultimately destroying Quandis and all its inhabitants
Summary
A princess' desire for power in a realm where everyone is a slave upsets the delicate balance of peace between the royal and working classes, triggering a series of events that will end in her either becoming a goddess or destroying the kingdom
