Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141375404X, Paperback)

A decade of death, poverty, famine, and desecration of humanity was met with destruction when the Five Houses fell. Ravencroft saw twenty years of peace, but in those twenty years there were many sorrows, for three of the ruling lords had fallen at the hands of the dark master, Mortalvous, a powerful necromancer hellbent on reclaiming Ravencroft by attaining five powerful artifacts and using their powers to bring himself back to full strength. The Archmage of Gaticorse Wing, along with the whole of Ravencroft, stood in his way. The Archmage had appointed five lords to rule the regions surrounding Septiria, the capital of Ravencroft. The four simple men with great talents, along with one creation, entrusted to guard the artifacts from Mortalvous’ rotting grasp were the stable master, Horgoth; an Elvin blacksmith, Rylan; and the Archmage’s two apprentices, Stryous and Cauldus. The fifth was created from the scale of a dragon, who was indebted to the Archmage for saving his life. He was called Pendrake. At a great celebration to announce the five lords, Mortalvous appeared and cursed them. “Deception, madness, death itself, time, and guilt will be the ruin of you all, and the artifacts will come to me” was the dark master’s curse. To try and delay the curse, the Archmage gave his immortality, but it was to no avail, for not a year and half after the Artifact Keepers departed from Gaticorse Wing, the first part of the curse claimed Stryous. The second part of the curse would seize Horgoth in the north and destroy the once peaceful country of Aramanthia in only a few short years after Horgoth’s death. The third part of the curse would seize Ersalvia and leave the great kingdom of Emerald Moore in ruin. As a final act of defiance, the Archmage would call a meeting of those who had been enslaved by Mortalvous during the Wretched Darkness. Would they agree to stand and fight Mortalvous’ army of death to the bitter end, and if so, would they be able to spare Ravencroft the horror of another reign of death and destruction?
