Impoverished by years of famine and plague, Duinnor struggles to reassert itself. Other Realms fair no better, and have little to offer Duinnor in the way of tribute or trade. The influence of all Realms declines, and in many places law is left in the hands of local authorities. Vast areas of the eastern realms are depopulated, and many towns and cities are abandoned.
Esildre escapes from Shatuum and Secundur, but not before she is cursed by Secundur. She travels first to Vanara, where she learns of the fate of her brother, but is shunned by her sister, who blames her for their brother's death, and by others due to her relationship with Secundur.
