The Darkwar rages, bringing bleak days of destruction and despair to Midkemia and Kelewan. To save both worlds, the powerful sorcerer Pug and select members of the mysterious Conclave of Shadows must journey deep into the dangerous realm of the bloodthirsty Dasati on an audacious mission that has little, if any, chance to succeed. In Midkemia, young warriors Tad and Zane and their fellow soldiers must protect the Kingdom from raiders. And Pug's beloved wife, Miranda, finds herself a prisoner of the Dasati and, even more ominously, of Pug's nemesis, the evil sorcerer Leso Varen.
But salvation may come from a friend thought long dead—an unlikely ally whose remarkable powers will be sorely needed. For there is a momentous battle looming . . . a final, fevered onslaught against the most malevolent agents of evil ever known.

In order to prevent war from ravaging his beloved world of Midkemia, master sorcerer Pug and his Conclave of Shadows have journeyed into the belly of the beast-the Dasati homeworld, where they encounter a stranger named Bek who may hold the key to Midkemia's survival. In Midkemia, the captive Lady Miranda struggles to escape the Dasati invaders so that she can bring back vital information that can help her world prevail. Feist's latest addition to his ongoing chronicle, and the conclusion of the Darkwar Saga, investigates a realm of brutal invaders and their resisters in a tale that joins familiar characters with new ones to flesh out a fascinating and richly visual world. A consummate storyteller, Feist has a large following among fans of epic fantasy. Recommended for most fantasy collections. [See Prepub Alert, LJ12/07.]
