The Legendary Majipoor Saga Continues.
The young street urchin Hissune was rewarded for his help in the restoration of Lord Valentine as Coronel of Majipoor with a job in the Hall of Records of the Labyrinth. Loathing the mounds of tax reports he's told to sift and classify, Hissune explores the Labyrinth, especially the forbidden places . . . especially the Register of Souls. Preparing for a summons to return to Castle Mount, Hissune bluffs his way into the most secret library of the lives of Majipoor's rich, famous and notorious inhabitants.
There in the Register of Souls, Hissune discovers more than he bargained for as he voyages among memories of power-struggle and battle, love and death on the turbulent Great Sea of Majipoor. It would seem that Lord Valentine has forgotten him. Hissune, however, now has damaging knowledge even of his Coronel, and his loyalty to the Starburst Crown will be tested hard . . .
