It is the delegation's job to resolve the issues between the two states. There is Daine going with them to rescue the emperor's fowls. "As part of the Tortallanian peace mission to Carthak, Daine is in a difficult position politically. They do not like the carthaki practices of slavery, but it is not their job to say anything - they are there to cure the emperor's fowls.
Daine, ELLEN-HARRIS BROOKER, P. J. SNYDER, and a team of Sir Gareths von Naxen, Alanna die Löwin, and Numair Salmalín are sent to the Emperor Magician of Karthak in the hope that she can facilitate the relationship with his precious little bird. Everything seems to be fine in the artistic courtyard of the charismatic emperor, who still assures his virginity in Tortall and really takes care of his valuable Aviere.
That calms the anxious mission, made even more difficult by the arrival of Numair, who had to escape from Carthak and Ozorne's wrath a few years ago. Nevertheless, not everything is in order in the Carthak kingdom. Daine-makes several boyfriends in Carthak, among them Numair's former schoolmaster and still closest boyfriend Lindhall Reed, Ozorne's legacy, his cousin Kaddar and a marmo set called Zekoi.
The Emperor Ozorne Muhassin Tasikhe neglects the veneration of the deities, especially the main goddess of Karthak, the cemetery witch. Surprisingly and later annoyed, she finds that she has the capacity to resurrect corpses, leading to a sequence of intermingled chapters that include the resurrection of a partially compound Archäopteryx frame culminating in the resurrection of an entire bunch of nestling and nestling dinosaurs balls.
Daine kills herself and has to be resurrected by the badger deity. Daine-fighting against her new" gift", which can only be taken away by the graveyard bitch, who has the highest authority in Karthak as the main divin. It' pointed out that the only mighty one in Carthak is the Black One, the Black One, the one who is the God dying, but she is his daughters and he is listening to her in affairs concerning Carthak.
Hag Cemetery is urging Daine, as her ship, to act by creating a mess with the resurrection of the mortal corpses in order to get Emperor Ozorne to recall the deity. There' s understandable reluctance to do so. As Ozorne Numair seems to have killed, an angry Daine enlivens a bunch of fossil ised by the magician Lindhall and destroyed the whole castle.
Daine's duties as a ship are fulfilled and her "gift" is at last taken away (for her great relief).
