Description

It is known that the strangers will sail from some part of the Ancient Lands and will cross the Yentru Sea. All our predictions and sacred books clearly say the same thing. The rest is all shadows. Shadows that prevent us from seeing the faces of those who are coming. In the House of Stars, the Astronomers of the Open Air read contradictory omens. A fleet is coming to the shores of the Remote Realm. But are these the long-awaited Northmen, returned triumphant from the war in the Ancient Lands? Or the emissaries of the Son of Death come to wage a last battle against life itself? From every village of the seven tribes, a representative is called to a Great Council. One representative will not survive the journey. Some will be willing to sacrifice their lives, others their people, but one thing is certain: the era of light is at an end.show more

R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and Ursula K. Le Guin's Books of Earthsea Pagina/12 A blend of idealistic innocence and inexhaustible imagination...Those who devoured The Lord of the Rings...will lose themselves in the lavish world of South American legends and myths of the Saga of the Borderlands La Nacion Bodoc's trilogy is a breath of fresh air in fantasy writing El Paisshow more
