"An intriguing fantasy in a fascinating world." —Robert Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of The Wheel of Time® series

The keep of Westwind, located in the cold mountainous heights called the Roof of the World, is facing attack by the adjoining land of Gallos. Arthanos, son and heir to the ailing Prefect of Gallos, wishes to destroy Westwind because the idea of a land, no matter how small and how isolated, where women rule is total anathema to him.

Saryn, Arms-Commander of Westwind, is dispatched to a neighboring land, Lornth, to seek support against the Gallosians. But Zeldyan, regent of Lornth, has problems in her family. To secure Zeldyan's aid, Saryn must pledge her personal support--and any Westwind guard forces she can raise--to the defense of Zeldyan and her son.

The fate of four lands, including Westwind, rest on Saryn's actions.

Praise for Arms-Commander

“Fans of Modesitt's Recluce books will likely love this latest addition to the series…Rahl is a well-crafted protagonist with believable reactions to the world around him, and the high level of ordinary detail describing Hamor and Recluce never gets in the way of the story.” —RT Bookreviews on Mage-Guard of Hamor

“Modesitt presents an interesting study of Chaos versus Order, Good versus Evil…and the attractions each of them has for all of us.” —Robert Jordan on The Magic of Recluce
