Descrição do produto
Lorn du Carren is the exiled Prince of Eglak, betrayed by his corrupt brother and cast out of his homeland for crimes he did not commit. Recently, Lorn has risen from despair and self-pity, taking up the sword to defend young Alec Mason and the Talisman of Unity from Salin Urdrokk's terrifying wrath. With Salin defeated and the Talisman safe, Lorn has found sanctuary and purpose in the realm of Faerie, where he aids the Fair Folk in their battle against the forces of darkness.
When he receives word that his brother Thorne is waging a futile war that has brought Eglak to the edge of ruin, Lorn resolves to return home to set matters aright. But as the war escalates, a sinister power grows in Thorne, a power somehow tied to the otherworldly weapon he wields, the Sword of Kings.
Meanwhile, a dangerous sorcerer escapes captivity and returns to threaten the people of Faerie. And an ancient curse grows in power, causing the living dead to spill forth from the tomb of Faryn-Gehnah. Is this strange convergence of events a coincidence, or is there a single dark will behind it? And can Lorn, Alec, and the heroes of Faerie do anything to stop it?
