Description

New York Times bestselling author, R. A. Salvatore's epic story of Corona continues!

Searching for his long-lost father, Bransen Garibond is tricked into journeying across the Gulf of Corona to the wild lands of Vanguard, where he is pressed into service in a desperate war against the brutal Samhaist, Ancient Badden.

On an Alpinadoran lake, just below Ancient Badden's magical ice castle, several societies, caught in the web of their own conflicts, are oblivious to Ancient Badden's devastating plans to destroy them.

Bransen becomes the link between the wars, and if he fails, all who live on the lake will perish, and all of northern Honce will fall under the shadow of the merciless and vengeful Samhaists.

"A worthy addition to the lore of Salvatore's invented world."--Kirkus Reviews

Review quote

Salvatore, a prolific and increasingly polished creator of fantasy sagas, launches the Saga of the First King with one of his strongest books to date. "Booklist"

Salvatore excels in world-building and creating complex, introspective characters who triumph through wit and determination as well as skill in open combat. "Library Journal on R. A. Salvatore"

Bob Salvatore always makes the most fantastic seem real. His heroes become friends we care about, and his foes fascinate. Ed Greenwood on R. A. Salvatore"
