Set nine months before the events of Shadows of a Fallen PrinceBlue Amber follows the adventures of young Layne Calefar—a shipwright’s son working in Stormholt.

When a chance encounter with the mysterious but fatally wounded ranger named Tamnar leaves Layne in the possession of a strange sun-shaped medallion, he suddenly finds his simple life turned upside down. Pursued by the same inhuman assassins who murdered Tamnar, Layne finds himself fleeing the safety of Stormholt with only a drunken mercenary for protection.

Together, they will undertake a journey which, while no more than fifty miles, might just as well have taken them across the Endless Sea. Compelled by both the medallion and his ill-conceived promise to Tamnar, Layne finds himself drawn to the very edge of the Shimmering—and beyond, into the wondrous and dangerous world of the Fey.

What he finds there will shake him to the core.
