Gargantuan dragons soar over Krynn, battling for control of the lands below. On the isle of Sancrist, the weakened Knights of Solamnia ask their old enemies the Knights of Takhisis, for help. At the insistence of Lord Gunthar, the knights renew the alliance forged during the last days of the Chaos War. But when the Grand Master of the Knights of Solamnia abruptly dies, the leadership of the knights - in fact their very existence - is challenged.
Jeff Crook's novel tells a tale of the Knights of Solamnia, the greatest knightly order on Krynn, faced with what may be their greatest challenge.

First, as I usually do, let me talk about the narrator. Honestly, for me he was a little lackluster. Not bad, per se, but nothing great either. Now, the story. Jeff Crook has done it again! Okay, let me preface this with the fact that I tried to read this book when it first came out and I just couldn't do it. I couldn't get into it. I didn't like where it seemed to be going. Now, coming back to it after all these years, I almost skipped this book. But I loved the last Jeff Crook novel I read, so I decided to give it another chance. And let me tell you, I'm so glad I did! This was a fantastic addition to the Dragonlance Saga! Gunthar and Crysania were well (and accurately) presented, the other characters were well developed, and the writing is true to the source material. That said, the story started off a little slow but once it picked up the pace gives any thriller a run for its money with equally high stakes and disasters around every corner. Obviously, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to any Dragonlance fan.
