It has stood watch through numerous wars on numerous planes. No one knows why. Yet the tower must be understood if this world and others are to be saved."Synopsis:Teenager Kara Kinfolk, Waterguard ranger Tal Stormgren, and their companions are trapped in the town of Arrow's Flight. Brutal murder, strange disappearances, and an ancient murderous cult known as the Harbingers oppose them at every turn. Their options are dwindling along with their hope of escape. In both dreams and the waking world, they are more than hunted - they are trapped. The Dim Realm continues in Volume II, where the initial wave of Harbingers has been defeated, but the small band of companions faces yet more challenges. In the underground dwarven realm of Kair-Thelbardin, those few who survive must run for their lives, encountering new dangers while trying to escape Daermorn's ultimate hunter - the Reaver!Book Two begins the frantic escape of the few surviving heroes from the clutches of the Harbingers. They must brave the terrors of the now transformed and haunted town of Arrow's Flight and all the ghosts and demons freed from its prison, and their only hope lies in uncovering clues to the prophecy they are bound to, and surviving a harrowing exit through an ancient dwarven mining complex whose inhabitants once disappeared without a trace. Is more than Daermorn a threat to the heroes? And who are the mysterious puppet masters called the Pale Gentlemen that are locked beneath the surface of the earth?
