But Beauceron is no mere brigand- he has bigger schemes in mind: it is his lifes ambition to capture Croad itself—whatever the cost. But what is the source of his obsession? Meanwhile in Croad, Arren, a young man of talent but obscure birth, is taken under the wing of the citys ruler, Lord Thaume, and grows into a young knight of prowess and reputation. But as his fortunes rise, those of his childhood friend Eilla decline. Years later, Beauceron has returned with Lady Isola to his home, the frozen city of Mettingloom. He is determined to raise an army to defeat his enemies in court and capture the city he loathes. In Croad, when Eilla is forced to take employment as a servant in Lord Thaumes household, Arren realizes that his love for her is more important than his prospects for advancement. They plan to elope, but Lord Thaumes jealous daughter Siedra is much more dangerous than Arren realizes. The Dog of the North is an exquisitely written tale of loyalty and treachery, heroism and cowardice, homeland and exile, set in a brilliantly imagined and utterly spellbinding world.
