Alan Feralis, half dark elf, wizard and son of a human knight, has been called upon by the elves, his most hated of enemies, to awaken an ancient wizard as the world awaits the arrival of the necromancer and the end of all life if he is not defeated.
It seemed like such a simple task at first, for a powerful elemental wizard. Just go to the mountain, send in his elemental servants, and have them tap on a an ancient wizard's tomb. Such a very simple, if somewhat dangerous task. But then he never expected to awaken an entire family of ancient wizards, or after that thousands more. He never expected to have to battle armies of the undead.
And above all else, he never expected for the dragons to get involved.
