Ten years after the cataclysmic events of Wrath of a Mad God took place, Midkemia now faces a new danger thought buried in myth and antiquity. A lost race of elves, the taredhel or 'people of the stars', have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply 'Home', a place lost in the mists of time. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it. Ruthless and arrogant, the taredhel intend to let nothing stand in their way; but before long, Pug and the Conclave realise that it's not necessarily the elves, but the demon horde pursuing them where the true danger lies. And hanging over Pug always is the prophecy that he will be doomed to watch everyone he loves die before him...Read Less

I?m a huge fan of Raymond E. Feist?s work, so it will come as no surprise that I really liked this book. It?s difficult for me to find the words to express just how much I enjoy his work. His books are so good that I must wait until the series is completely released so that I can read them one right after the other. The action, fighting, and drama are so high and intense that I can?t read one and wait until the next is released.
The entertaining and knowledgeable Taredhel brothers Gulamendis, a Demon Master, and Laromendis a Conjurer, were essential to not only understanding about demon lore but also to learn how the Taredhel come to be so very different from the other Elves we are used to reading about on Midkemia.
Amirantha, a warlock who is a summoner of demons, is more than he appears to be. And because of this, he is both a contributor and a victim of the Demon Legion. He?s also got himself caught in a complicated romance. Every time that his and Sandreena?s, Knight-Adamant of the Order of the Shield of the Weak, paths cross she punches him in the face, knocking him to the ground.
Pug?s mind is heavy with the price he must pay, to see all the ones that he loves die before him. With the aid of members of the Conclave like the multi-talented and highly secretive Jim Dasher and Father-Bishop Creegan of the Temple of Dala, they must find a way to interpret the vague and not very helpful insights given to him by the Oracle.
Only by this group of potential enemies working together and gathering more and more information to answer the questions that keep mounting, will Midkemia be able to hold off the Dread Legion invading the last know habitable world.
