Istar is the mightiest empire Krynn has ever known. The Kingpriests have reigned in the name of Paladine, the supreme god of good, for centuries. But danger lurks in the empire's heart. The Kingpriest has foreseen his own death, and dark forces converge on the Temple, vying to control the throne.
Darken Wood . . . even the name brings dread to humans. But it is home to Ansalon's centaur tribes, where they have dwelt for ages in peace under the Forestmaster's watchful eye. Now, ten years after the Summer of Chaos, strife is tearing the centaurs apart. A mad chieftain seeks to overthrow his enemies, and an even darker presence is changing the forest itself. Trephas, a brave young warrior, sets out for Solace to seek aid against these enemies. He finds more than he bargained for in Caramon Majere, Hero of the Lance, and his spitfire daughter Dezra. Acclaimed Dragonlance author Chris Pierson tells a tale of Ansalon's most mysterious race, the fabled centaurs.

As Beldinas prepares to strike the final blow, Cathan must unravel the vision that plagues him: a dream of a burning hammer. His choice will save the world ... or herald its doom."
