(From the publisher):
In a dark world of magic and war, Derek Re'Dell returns to his home village of Tramidia with a mysterious relic: a simple amulet believed to be a pointer that will lead to the Book of Drake, the last spellbook of the most powerful magic user who ever lived. But word of the amulet spreads quickly and Derek soon finds his life, as well as the lives of those around him, is in mortal danger.
The Nine Lands is the gripping account of Derek's journey East to the great city of Gelbinor, the city of scholars, where he believes he will ultimately find the truth behind his amulet. He is accompanied by his best friend, Morgan, a deeply religious and traditional man, and by his daughter Rebecca, an inquisitive young woman struggling to find herself. In the end, only one person will ultimately possess the powerful relic, and thus control the fate of the Nine Lands.
