Long ago, the Eldric mysteriously disappeared from the land, shortly after the Krell Wars when Drachar’s shade was finally banished from the world. Perhaps they believed the threat was gone, but in leaving they took with them their sorcery, the only effective means of defeating demons. Then came the Prophecy and only one thing is certain in the cryptic lines, Drachar’s shade will one day return. Against this backdrop three men seek what became of the Eldric. One man, Vastra, recklessly ambitious and driven by greed for power, harbours a secret and will kill to protect it. His companions, Kaplyn and Lars, have their own reasons for helping, but who will succeed?
Vastra seeks an Eldric talisman and the journey is fraught with peril. Already there are clear signs that demons once again seek souls. None of the men realise the train of events they are about to set in motion will affect three worlds, nearly destroying theirs in the process. Their journey will take them deep into the bowels of the earth. All will not be as it seems. One man will betray them and yet salvation may come from an unlikely source….
