The Riftwar is done. But a fearsome army of trolls and renegade humans, emboldened by the drug of destruction, has risen in strength from the ashes of defeat. There is one, however, who defies the call to battle…
New York Times bestselling fantasist Raymond E. Feist returns to a beleaguered realm of wonders and magic – where war is an enduring legacy; where blood swells the rivers and nourishes the land. Attend to this hitherto untold chapter in the violent history of Midkemia – a towering saga of great conflicts, brave acts and insidious intrigues. It is the story of a traitor who rejects the brutality of his warlike kind and casts his lot with the human targets of their fierce aggression. It tells of mysterious deaths and sinister machinations – and sings of a time when the fate of many civilizations rested in the able, unfaltering hands of Riftwar veterans Squire Locklear and cunning thief-turned-squire Jimmy the Hand. It chronicles the powerful awakening of Owyn – apprentice magician of untried strengths – and celebrates the selfless achievements of Pug, the greatest sorcerer of two worlds. Welcome to astonishing new corners of a world you have not yet fully explored – and prepare to experience true excitement, blood-chilling terror…and the triumph born from the doom aimed at the beating heart of a kingdom.
