Overview

From the depths of the demiplane of shadow comes a new magic so mysterious it confounds even the Chosen of Mystra.

From beneath the dune seas of Anauroch escapes one of Toril's most powerful and ancient evils -- the phaerimm.

From Evereska, the last elven refuge on comes word of invasion.

From nowhere appears a group of enigmatic sorcerers determined to destroy the phaerimm and save Evereska . . . for purposes known only to themselves.

From the author of Crucible: The Trial of Cyric the Mad, Beyond the High Road, and Death of the Dragon (with Ed Greenwood) comes the most Realms-shaking event since The Threat from the Sea.

    Read Me

    I think this was one of the best books I've read in a long time. It only gets better in the next two books so stop reading this and buy the book.

    AWESOME BOOK

    A blue beam swept the floor of the Vyshaan crypt where a beholder floated around. At that time a powerful female human, Vala, as the eye tyrants master. Yet, Galaeron(main character) stood across the room robbed of his magical powers by the beam. This is how the story began. It didn¿t take much before the Sharn Wall was disintigrated, the beholder was dead, the room was filled with pherimm, and that mysterious wizerd named Melegaunt would have to save Galaeron and Vala. At htis point it was up to Galaeron, Vala and her henchmen, and Melefaunt would have to defeat this evil From feeding off Everska¿s magic sorces. Plus, the only real way to save the city was to unlesh a powerful and evil magic of the Drows ( evil elfs ) into Galaeron. This book was aweasome. Any body who likes J.R.R. Tolkien¿s adventure stories would possibly like this book. In that case I would reccomend it to those people.

    blah

    this is the first forgotten realms book i have read and it wasnt the greatest. in a few spots it was spontaneous and quick paced, but in others it was SO boring. it took me forever to get through this book. it was good once you got through it, but the process in some parts was painful. i would recommend it but it wouldnt be the first on my list.

    The old magic is returning

    This book is not the greatest. But Forgotten Realms fans should read it, so they know what's happening in Faerun. There is much action in this book, and lot's of powerful magic. A new time is coming...
