In the final volume of the epic Riftwar Cycle, the fate of the black Magician will be sealed as prophecy becomes truth
Civil war is tearing apart the Kingdom of the Isles, for the throne lies empty and rivals are converging. Somewhere in the Grey Towers Mountains something not of this world is emerging. It will require that alliances be made between mortal enemies if disaster is to be averted. Elves and men must stand together, ancient heroes must rise again, and the magicians must be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice if the whole world is to be saved.
