A translation of the blurb on the cover of the Russian edition was sent in by Elena Leonoff:
In revenge for the death of his son, the sorceror-king Brandin Igratsky resolves to destroy even the memory of the name of the land he has conquered, wiping out its defenders and scattering their brothers and sons across the Peninsula of the Palm. But memory cannot be destroyed. It revives and becomes a force capable of resisting the tyrant’s magic. Alessan, son of the fallen prince of Tigana, adopts hundreds of disguises as he weaves webs of conspiracy, recruiting supporters and bringing the ancient magic of the Palm under his control. The battle in which he and Brandin will meet face to face is beginning.
