|Plot Summary of Emperor and Clown - Man of His Word 4|
Emperor and Clown picks up where Perilous Seas left off, with Queen Inos of Krasnegar married to the cursed Sultan Azak of Zark. Inos hopes that Azak will help solidify her right to rule the tiny kingdom of Krasnegar, but she soon discovers that Azak is nowhere near as easy to manage now that Rap has killed the Sorceress Rasha. To make matters worse, the curse that Rasha placed on Azak is still there - he still cannot touch another woman without burning her. Humiliated, but determined to make Inos his, Azak and Inos set out for the capital of the Impire to beg the Imperor's aid.
Meanwhile, Rap is being tortured in Azak's dungeon because it is obvious that he has feelings for Inos. Inos has no idea that he is there, as Azak promised her that he would be released. However, Rap's faithful friends are not about to let Rap die in some desert dungeon in the middle of nowhere. Once free, Rap isn't sure what to do. He was so sure that Inos would need his help and that they would return to Krasnegar together once he found her, but now she was married to the handsome, powerful sultan - what would she need with a homely, faithful stableboy? Still, Rap had promises to keep and prophecies to fulfill so he too set out for the heart of the Impire. All too soon Rap would find himself battling the crazed jotunn raider Kalkor, meddling in the Impire's politics and finding himself one of the most feared men alive...
