(From the publisher):
As the Foul Folk spread their evil across the kingdoms of Mithgar, two Warrows, bound by a pledge to a dying swordsman, continue their venture into the very teeth of the conflict ravaging the entire world. Yet Tip and Beau do not travel alone. Fortune has favored them with assistance from many strange allies, including companions sworn to protect them as they move eastward to deliver their mysterious token to an even more mysterious end: Agron.
Beset on all sides by creatures of legend, by treachery, by the loss of loved ones, and by cataclysmic ruin, Tip and Beau and their allies - Elves, Dwarves, mages, a pack of Silver Wolves and their mysterious leader, Warrior maidens, and Hidden Ones - struggle to keep the world from falling into darkness irredeemable.
At last there comes a summons from the High King himself, a call to the final great battle of war, where the fate of all hinges upon its outcome. And so Tip and Beau head into peril again, bearing only the puzzling words of an Elven Seer to guide them: "Seek the aid of those not men to quench the fires of war." To find the answers they must march in the forefront of a magnificent host and do battle with the vast armies of Modru, the malevolent Black Mage determined to lead the young Warrows and their allies into the very crucible of Hel....
