Kadya is one of the triplet princesses of Ruwenda.
Together they fought and destroyed the vile magician Orogastus.
In this book, Kadya travels through the marshes to the city of Disappeared Creatures, where she wants to put back her three-eyed sword in the place where she found it.
It is not accepted. She meets the Hassitti, small, intelligent creatures who are the keepers of the city.
They have dreamers, and now they talk of a danger coming from the mountains. This turns out to be a plague coming from a sick magician, one of the old creatures who has gone bad. He heals himself and comes back to ruwenda.
With her sword and three companions, kadya sets of to destroy him.
