Sinbad and company fight out of the frying pan and into the fire, fire demons, that is. The guardians of the Temple of Kabrit Amud stand between Sinbad's crew and their goal and swords are useless against this enemy. A grave price must be paid for removing the Amulet from its resting place. Sinbad has only one hope for success - but at what cost? Back on the island of Ma'rut, Sam continues to fight her new captor and Alorana learns just how much magical power the young woman possesses. But all is for naught, as Sam is at the Queen's mercy with no one to come to her aid!
