Arasa doesn't know who was born first, herself or her twin sister. This wouldn't be a problem…if the fate of an entire empire wasn't at stake. In the attempt to figure out a possible solution from an ancient text, she receives both help and companionship from Elrik, an exotic, foreign mage. But her sister has found a different solution, one that will require Arasa to make the toughest decision of all.
Arasa: "Mother Goddess, I've wasted months on a fool's quest--I could kiss you for your help, Elrik! Thank you!"
Elrik: "Well...you're welcome. And, ah...if you actually wanted to, I don't think I would be inclined to object."
