Sequestered in the blackness of the dreaded Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, surrounded by nameless creatures of evil, Raistlin Majere weaves a plan to conquer the darkness--to bring it under his control.

Crysania, a beautiful and devoted cleric of Paladine, tries to use her faith to lead Raistlin from the darkness. She is blind to his shadowed designs, and he draws her slowly into his neatly woven trap.

Made aware of Raistlin's plan, a distraught Caramon travels back in time to the doomed city of Istar in the days before the Cataclysm. There, together with the ever-present kender Tasslehoff, Caramon will make his stand to save Raistlin's soul.

Or so he believes.

About the author (2001)

Best known for her work on the DragonLance fantasy series, Margaret Weis was born on March 16, 1948 in Independence, Missouri. She graduated from the University of Missouri in 1970. She worked for Herald Publishing House, starting as a proofreader and leaving as the editorial director of their trade press division. In 1983, she went to work for TSR, Inc., the company responsible for Dungeons & Dragons and many other role-playing games. At TSR, she was part of the design team responsible for the creation of the DragonLance saga, which would eventually sell more than 12 million books. She collaborated with Tracy Hickman to write many of the books herself. In addition to writing, she is the owner and president of Mag Force 7, which produces collectible trading card games.

Tracy Hickman was born a Mormon on November 26, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended Marlon Hills Elementary School, where he wrote his first novel. The family moved to Vegas in 1966 when his father was offered a teaching job there, and Hickman transferred to Ruby Thomas Elementary School. They eventually moved back to Utah, and Tracy went to Provo High School where he took part in the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.. While in high school, he had many odd jobs such as a paper boy, a stock boy at a supermarket, and an usher at a movie theater. He graduated from Provo High School in 1974. Hickman entered the Missionary Home in Salt Lake City in 1975. From there, he was sent to Hawaii for language training for his eventual trip to Singapore. He was stationed in Hawaii and taught at the Mission House there while waiting for his visa to come in. He did get to Indonesia and stayed there for a year and a half, preaching the Mormon way of life. He was honorably released in 1977, and held a series of odd jobs after returning to the states. He was a glass worker, a television assistant director and a drill press operator in a geneology center. In 1981, Hickman approached TSR about buying two of his gaming modules. He was hired by the company instead and began working with Margaret Weis. The two wrote the "DragonLance Chronicles" together, and since 1985, they have written over 40 books. Hickman wrote two solo novels in 1996, "Requiem of Stars" and "The Immortals.
