Zwanzig Jahre nach einer kriegerischen Auseinandersetzung zwischen der „Koalition“, dem Reich der Menschen, und dem Volk der Tessavalen: Kalusherian und Lartis, sein attraktiver junger Begleiter, besuchen Tanshor, eine nahezu entvölkerte Welt, deren Geschick sie vor ein Rätsel stellt und die sich schließlich als Heimat des Legaten entpuppt.

Anders als seine Zeitgenossen versteht Lartis die „Sprache“ dieser vorgeblich stummen Wesen, die ihm das mysteriöse Schicksal der verschwundenen Einwohner Tanshors enthüllen.
Gut zwei Jahre später: Lartis ist ebenfalls dem Orden beigetreten und trifft Kalusherian auf dem Konzil, einer Vollversammlung des Ordens, wieder. Er erreicht, daß der Legat seinen Freund Sastomir, ein Findelkind, zum Adepten wählt. Gemeinsam suchen sie die geheimnisumwitterte Welt Pashit auf, wo Kalusherian überraschend seinem alten Jugendfreund Zaridna begegnet, der auch Sastomir auf verblüffende Weise verbunden ist.
