Arthensil City, the refuge of humanity along the Eiderveis River. Under the guidance of Lord Ostincair humanity thrives. Only select hunting parties dare venture into the deep forests along the river, for a corruption spreads from the wizard's mountains in the south to beast and creature alike. But Ostincair's men are about to make a discovery that will change the face of the river. A child long thought dead will be found, and her innocence will spread hope to two races. This book begins a new series connected to The Sword Of The Dragon novels by the same author.
