Overview

Young Dion Starfire is the ruler of a galaxy that is finally at peace after years of strife and bloodshed. Yet the peace is an uneasy one. Dion has fallen desperately in love with a woman who is not his queen, and suddenly the fragile alliances that rest on his marriage are threatened. Then real violence erupts as an illegitimate son of the dead king, in hiding on a forgotten planet, plots Dion's overthrow. At his command is an army of unseen "ghosts"—alien presences that can roam the galaxy and kill at will. Dion must turn to an old mentor and enemy, Derek Sagan, as the one man who can help him battle the bastard prince and his dark minions. And at Derek's side hovers the powerful, shadowy presence of his lost love, Lady Maigrey. If Dion can only win their aid, he may have one last chance to preserve his throne—and peace for the galaxy.

In 1983, she moved to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to take a job as book editor at TSR, Inc., producers of the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® role-playing game.

At TSR, Weis became part of the DRAGONLANCE® design team. Created by Tracy Hickman, the Dragonlance world has continued to intrigue fans of both the novel and the game for generations. Hickman and Weis wrote the first of many fantasy novels, the DRAGONLANCE CHRONICLES, which are still in print after almost twenty-seven years. The books have sold over twenty million copies world wide. The first novel, Dragons of Autumn Twlight, was made into an animated film from Paramount Pictures.

Weis is the author/co-author of several other New York Times best-selling series, including DARKSWORD, ROSE OF THE PROPHET, STAR OF THE GUARDIANS, THE DEATHGATE CYCLE, and DRAGONSHIPS. Her new series, with author Robert Krammes, THE DRAGON BRIGADE, will be published by Daw in May 2011.

Weis and her daughter, Lizz, have written two paranormal romance novels and a Wonder Woman graphic novel for DC Comics with artist, Justiniano, to be published by DC Comics in Fall 2011.
