Bob Thomas has delivered a novel of an epic length that will hold your interest right from the very beginning. Thomas is superb at character development and that is no easy task when dealing with mortals, demons, fairies and my favorite character, a mountain cat. This is a great read of monumental battles and the fight for good to prevail over horrific evil. 5 Stars is all that can be given but it deserves seven stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down. November 27, 2011
I read this in record time. Great characters, awesome story and a very well crafted world. If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings or Game f Thrones you will enjoy this.
An Epic Fantasy Novel
Locked away in an ancient dungeon in a solitary fortress, the last remaining person that holds a memory of the once powerful kingdom of Euwold breathes slowly in his fetid prison. The magic that holds him prisoner is powerful but it can not control his mind. For three centuries he has searched without success for someone, anyone who can accept his thoughts and free him from his forced exile.
One lone night in the dead of winter with the Sorol Mountains blanketed beneath a new snow, the aging wizard's thoughts stumble across one such person. Within a storm's throw from the coast of the Ice Sea, Hafram unleashes his last, desperate hope. With his magics fading from age and abandonment, he knows this is his last chance of freeing the continent from the oppressive weight and destruction of the empire from Darthune.
The struggle begins again with the quest for the white staff, for the ultimate fate of the continent and of its kingdoms for the next five-thousand years
