They are half-brothers, divided by the vicious throes of a blood feud -- Lysaer, a prince raised as heir to a crown, and Arithon, brought up by mages. One bears the gift of the power of light and the other, command of darkness. Exiled to a world not their own, the pair must find common ground to defeat the Mistwraith that has banished the sun.

Yet there is more at stake than one battle with the Mistwraith -- as the sorcerers of the Fellowship of Seven know well. For between them the half-brothers hold the balance of the world, its harmony, and its future, in their hands.[1]


  • The author wrote 17 drafts of this story arc before arriving at a satisfying beginning, and has stated that every single idea from later arcs can be found in this volume. One of the original drafts began following the wedding of Talera s'Ahelas to the King of Amroth.[2]
