"Welcome to the world of Krynn-- formerly a place of beauty and peace, now poisoned by fear and paranoia. Neighbors glare at each other in suspicion. Religious strife tears once tranquil communities apart. Creatures of myth and legend stalk the countryside, sowing terror. As their world descends into darkness, a group of lifelong companions are reunited. Only this ragtag band can save Krynn from the dark forces looming on the horizon-- but the bonds of friendship that time could not sever will be sorely tested by overwhelming odds. A long dormant evil has arisen anew-- and dispatched an army of reptilian warriors to baptize Krynn in blood. A conflict unlike any other has begun--"--Page 4 of cover.

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 numerous role-playing games including Dungeons and Dragons. At TSR, she was part of the design team responsible for the creation of the DragonLance saga, which lead to the DragonLance fantasy series of books. She collaborated with Tracy Hickman to write many of the books. She is also the author of the Star of the Guardian series, the Death Gate Cycle, and the Darksword Trilogy.

Tracy Hickman was born on November 26, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He 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 while waiting for his visa to come in.
