Dedication:
This series is dedicated to my mother, Barbara Jean Evans, who taught to me a deep affection for Tad Hall, the Hundred Aker Woods, the Shire, and many other hidden places and countries beyond the fields we know. She also induced in me a lifelong desire to make my own discoveries, and to share them with others. I wish to share these books. with her.
First Sentence:
Even in the cave, where the crackling fire sent gray fingers of smoke up to the hole in the stony roof, and red light played across the wall carvings of twining serpents and tusked, staring-eyed beasts, the cold still gnawed at Simon's bones.
Last Sentence:
May contain spoilers
As darkness crept over the drowned valley, the sweet, clear voice rose through the trees and echoed out over the black water.

Cover:
"AN EPIC TALE OF THE
STRUGGLE OF GOOD AGAINST
EVIL... THE STRUGGLE
BETWEEN BEING AND UNBEING...
AN EXQUISITE RENDERING
OF THE CONFLICT BETWEEN FORCES
OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS."
- San Francisco Chronicle Book Review


It is a time of darkness, dread, and ultimate testing for the realm of Osten Ard, for the wild magic and terrifying minions of the undead Sithi ruler, Ineluki the Storm King, are spreading their seemingly undefeatable evil across the kingdom.  With the very land blighted by the power of Ineluki’s wrath, the tattered remnants of a once-proud human army flee in search of a last sanctuary and rallying point - the Stone of Farewell, a place shrouded in mystery and ancient sorrow.

And even as Prince Josua seeks to rally his scattered forces, Simon and the surviving members of the League of the Scroll are desperately struggling to fulfill missions which take hem from the fallen citadels of humans to the secret mountain caves of the Qanuc trolls... across storm-tormented waters to discover the truth behind an almost-forgotten legend... to the secret heartland of the Sithi, where the near-immortals must at last decide whether to ally with the race of men in a final war against those of their own blood....
