Cornwall, England, 1980. The sixteenth-century is insistent. Can we believe that Medieval treasure lies within the dark underworld beneath Chy Nans? Jon is beginning to wish that the gateway had never been opened, a tapestry of death and destruction emerging even as he is drawn to the Kingdom of the South, where shuddering romance and the power of majestic music claim his soul. But it seems there is no escape, as the threads of intrigue and mystery extend even here, a link with ancient Kevrinek astounding, the secrets of the Penkevils coming to light. The ring is beginning to close. Treasure there may be, but is the price too high?
