The first book in a brand new series by the master of epic fantasy, Raymond E. Feist. Midkemia now faces a new danger. A lost race of elves, the taredhel, have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply ‘Home’, a place lost in the mists of time. Convinced that Midkemia is that place, they are coming to reclaim it. But before long, Pug and the Conclave realise that it’s not necessarily the elves, but the demon horde pursuing them where the true danger lies. And hanging over Pug always is the prophecy that he will be doomed to watch everyone he loves die before him!
