Thirteen years after the events of Madness in Solidar, Alastar has settled into his role as the Maitre of the Collegium and would like nothing better than to focus his efforts on his family.
However, bad harvests and worse weather spark acts of violence between the High Holders and the Factors. Once again, Alastar is called upon by the Rex to maintain a careful political balance.
