From official release/information:
Treason Keep is the second book in a stated 3 book series (Medalon, Treason Keep, Harshini). As a second book it carries a lot of weight--it must bridge us between the introductory tone of the first book and the concluding chapters of the third book without losing our interest. Treason Keep continues the story of R'shiel, a young woman pushed onto the path of destiny, the Harshini, a magical hidden race of sorcerers and Tarja, a young man also thrust into danger by forces beyond his control. Amongst all of this are the politics of empire building and holding, the personal vendettas that so often drive affairs of state and the crumbling rigidity of social values held a bit too long.
