The first book in a brand new 2 book series by the master of epic fantasy, Raymond E. Feist. Ten years after the cataclysmic events of Wrath of a Mad God took place, Midkemia now faces a new danger thought buried in myth and antiquity.
A lost race of elves, the taredhel or ‘people of the stars’, 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. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it. Ruthless and arrogant, the taredhel intend to let nothing stand in their way; 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… (From HarperCollins UK 13 August 2008 )
Laromendis is a conjurer from another world - a world inhabited by a race of high elves whose home is being ravaged by the Dread Legion of the Demon King. The elves' only hope lies in finding the lost homeworld - Midkemia - and now they must reclaim it, at any cost! Pug summons the help of a warlock and a holy demon-taming cleric, but in doing so, he has unwittingly reunited two former lovers whose parting was bitter . . . and who just might have secret agendas of their own.
The title was announced by Raymond E. Feist on the Feistfans-l Mailing List on 20 April 2008.
