Set in the kingdom of Arelon, the book pictures the points of view of Raoden the Prince of Arelon, Sarene the Princess of Teod, and Hrathen the high priest. The experiences of these persons reveal what actually happen behind the fall of Arelon’s magical, sophisticated capital city, Elantris, and the decline of its people, Elantrians, from gods to cursed beings.

Summary of the Book
Arelon’s new capital, Kae, crouches in the shadow of Elantris. Princess Sarene of Teod arrives for a marriage of state with Crown Prince Raoden. She finds instead that Raoden has died and she is considered his widow. Both Teod and Arelon are under threat. So Sarene decides to use her new status to counter the machinations of Hrathen, a Fjordell high priest.
But neither Sarene nor Hrathen suspect the truth about Prince Raoden. Stricken by the same curse that ruined Elantris, Raoden was secretly exiled by his father to the dark city. His struggle to help the wretches trapped there begins a series of events that will bring hope to Arelon, and perhaps reveal the secret of Elantris itself.
