Six years have passed since the druid Lyleth resurrected her king and won back his throne. Now, his murderous nephew, Talan, is king of the Five Quarters. But Talan wants more than the throne, he wants immortality, and Lyleth’s six-year-old daughter can give it to him. For she is rumored to be the fabled “Child of Death” . . . and Lyleth will stop at nothing to get her daughter back.
Six years have passed since Hugh Cavendish journeyed to the Five Quarters and returned to our world, broken. With Aunt Merryn nearing death, he must uncover the location of the third well and find his way back to the Five Quarters if he is to save his daughter.
But the fate of both the living and the dead rest with the one who is both and neither. The Child of Death.
