(from the back of the book)
The Empire of Horas is proud of its glorious past, of the aggregation of knowledge sacred to Hesinde and of the recent results of its skillful diplomats and traders. What would be, however, if this was built "new order" was not stable, if documents from the glorious past turned out to be a game of diplomats and a product of hagglers? How would the heroes react if they were confronted with such knowledge? How would the officials react? And, above all: How would the secret societies, cables and circles react - the invisible rulers (Unsichtbare Herrscher) of the Empire of Horas?
