Trapped in Aura Vere, the twins must survive, without being discovered by the kaerlings. “I simply adored reading Ambassador and look forward to the sequel!” C Messelodi In a case of mistaken identity, Otta is assumed to be a kaerling ambassador and finds refuge in Aura Vere. The shrineless god instructs Otta to find out about the mythical unicorn in Aura Vere's library, but, as her fascination with the kaerlings increases, her studies decline When it becomes clear that the kaerlings are aware of Otta's presence in the city, she and Erl must find a way of leaving in secret, before the foreign ambassadors find her.

She pulled off his wraps and gloves and made him stretch out his hands to the fire. Derri did as he was told and stared into the dancing flames, entranced. Otta started removing her own woollen gloves and fur mufflers as Erl continued to joke with the guards. A sudden halt in conversation indicated that something was wrong. She glanced up as she removed her hood, enjoying the heat on her face. Without exception every guard was staring at her. Outside the traders’ wagons lumbered past. What’s wrong? she asked Erl silently. No idea, he replied. They were fine until you showed your face. Be haughty, came Nagaru’s whisper. Without questioning the god, Otta did as he commanded.
