The Time of the Wolf is at Hand…
Sixteen years have passed since the battle of Armagedir. The Torunnans and Merduks have become close allies in a world that is growing increasingly strange and fearsome.
The Himerian Church rules two thirds of the continent and is become a swollen, corrupt theocracy which strangles independent thought; only in Torunna, in Ostrabar and in Hebrion do Kings still rule free of the black-clad Inceptines.
But now off the coast of Hebrion, a vast fleet of ships comes sailing out of the empty west. The immortal arch-mage Aruan has returned to the Old World at last, and he intends to claim it as his own.
