Description

"Salvatore's strongest fantasy to date . . . [His] potent mixture of detailed historical context, wellrounded characters, brisk pacing, and exciting battle scenes make for a consuming read."--Publishers Weekly

With the demon dactyl and its foul minions defeated, the war-weary citizens of the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear wish only to begin rebuilding their broken lives. Yet the specter of civil war haunts the ravaged land--and a specter more fearsome still. For the demon, though defeated, was not destroyed. And now its vengeful spirit has found an unholy sanctuary. The elf-trained ranger Elbryan Wynden presses north to reclaim the savage Timberlands from retreating goblin hordes. His companion, Pony, mistress of gemstone magic, turns south to the civilized--but no less perilous-- streets of Palmaris. Suddenly they find themselves caught up in a ruthless power struggle to decide the fate of all Corona--a struggle that will push their courage and love to the breaking point...and beyond.

"Unforgettable . . . Another rousing and masterful DemonWars adventure . . . A must-read for all fans of Salvatore's work."--Realms of Fantasy
