(From the publisher):
The lifetimes of 12 vastly different wizards have been devoted to one objective: Find the long-lost talisman of the great Iron Mage. When he died, he left behind an object that is the focus of all his unearthly powers. No one knows what it is. No one knows where it is. The wizards' slow, methodical search is hidden behind the actions of the greedy Lord Duarin. Usurper of the throne, Duarin is unaware of their true intentions. Politically protected, magically powerful, there is nothing to stand in their paths - nothing but the whisper of a prophecy. It is the foretelling of a dead man who will become the king of kings. And unfortunately for Lord Duarin and his 12 sorcerers, the prophecy is true.
