Now prisoners of the desert king in Corrado, Jian, Kaymin, Cheyne and Coedy find themselves desperate to escape in order to carry on with the quest given them by the Gods. With two shards left to uncover and the identities of the final two Chosen still unknown, time grows ever shorter.

The icy lands of Wherry have been conquered and continue to sit in enemy hands, the plague afflicting Gaal takes more lives each day, and the famine in Morvay threatens its people with starvation. With the final two Gods yet to be located and freed, Trivallyn's fate balances upon the edge of destruction.
