In the duchy of Tira Virte, fine art is prized both for its beauty and as a legal record of everything from marriages to treaties. But such paintings are more than just documents: they are also magical. For certain males of the Grijalva family are born with the frightening ability to manipulate time, space and reality through their paintings - thus altering events and influencing people in the real world. Always this power has been used solely to aid Tira Virte and its rulers. But now Sario Grijalva has learned to use his gift in a wholly new way. Obsessed with his beautiful cousin Saavedra, he will do anything to win her love. And when Saavedra gives her heart to another, in his fury Sario takes a first, fateful step beyond the boundaries formerly placed on Grijalva spell-casting - by ensnaring her with forbidden arts. It is this rash and dangerous act which sets in motion a pattern of treachery and betrayal that will span generations. And may cause Tira Verte - and the Grijalvas - to pay a terrible price.
