But when the Knights' council adjourns due to a devastating magical storm that threatens Palanthas, Gerard and Galdar become uneasy allies on a quest to protect the city by recovering a mysterious stolen chest. The pair must track down the chest before its thief discovers the secret that will allow him to unlock it, thereby unleashing its terrible contents onto the world of Krynn.
Solace is booming out of control. An important temple dedication is bringing merchants, dignitaries, and a host of ne'er-do-wells and surprise visitors to the fabled tree-top town. And lately there have been a series of mysterious incidents. Palin has sworn off magic and nowadays acts as town mayor. He desperately needs a new sheriff, as the last one has just been murdered by malefactors unknown. Fortunately, Gerard has quit the knighthood after a quarrel with his father, and arrives just in time to don a sheriff's badge. Douglas W. Clark reunites two of the most popular characters from the War of Souls epic in this new novel set in the best-selling Dragonlance world. The town of Solace is booming after the War of Souls, with anticipation driven to a fever pitch by the upcoming dedication of a new temple to Mishakal. But when the sheriff turns up murdered, a strange warning carved into his chest, Mayor Palin Majere sends for the one man who might solve the crime and restore calm to the troubled citizens: Gerard uth Mondar.
