A storm of powers has set free the spirit of a dead emperor on a world on the brink of war. Shastlan, usurper and murderer, has destroyed one world and is unleashed on another.
The fate of the world hangs in the balance. The might of Trosgarth is ready to spill forth its armies. The enemy has not been idle and since their defeat in the legendary Krell Wars, new sources of evil have been found. Priests of Ryoch communicate across the battlefield, their shaol (guardian spirits) making them omnipotent warriors. Demons, krell, grakyn and death knights unite to turn the tide of war. In the background Drachar’s shade manipulates both sides, trying to deny the Prophecy from coming to pass.
Into this frenzy, three men, Kaplyn, Vastra and Lars, seek the Eldric. Saviours of the Krell Wars, a race that mysteriously disappeared from the land many years ago; their sorcery was the only power to defeat the demons. Now they are gone and to all effects the people are powerless against the growing threat. And then dragons are discovered. But are they saviours or betrayers? Kaplyn will be taken to the brink of madness in his efforts to save the land, and only then will he understand the full threat that is Shastlan. In a land fraught with betrayal, fear and death, the shadows are deepening.
