Blood plays a key role in the lives of the people who inhabit the plant locked in perpetual winter. A young novice Interpreter is brought from the far North to the Hold by the Queen's own bodyguard. She takes a special interest in his welfare and his future. The Queen sees him only as one more despised Interpreter to force her through her daily round of stifling Rituals.He becomes enmeshed in the violent political and social battles which riddle the Hold. Revolutionaries try to tear apart the ancient social fabric, while the aristocracy attempts to preserve it.

And the Interpreters use both factions to further their own ends.When he finds out the truth concerning his birth, he must struggle even more to free himself from the meshes of both Hold and Camp. After a furious battle between the revolutionaries and the aristocracy, he leaves the Hold for the Waste. He flees both to preserve his life and to discover just who he is and what he must do. Blood determines his heritage, and he must struggle against the shadow it casts over his life.
