Taltos, a land that has never known peace, is thrown into peril as the
ancient promise of an awakened god begins to be fulfilled. A fallen
knight and a snakeman form an unlikely alliance to protect one
innocent. A unit of dwarves set out to free a betrayer. A slavemaster
gambles all to seize the ultimate prize. A necromancer activates the

race to a final showdown begins. Allies and enemies are counted as
warlords rise in the land of Taltos.
