From publicity material: Froom out of the East they rode, Loethar and his barbarian horde -- a merciless plague destroying kingdom after kingdom and the sovereigns who had previously mocked them. Now, only one last land remains unconquered; the largest, richest, and most powerful realm of the Denova Set -- Penraven.
Meanwhile, the heir to the throne, accompanied by a single warrior, sets off to reclaim his kingdom, uncovering dark family secrets and forming uneasy alliances with one-time enemies, and he seeks to make things once again right. (Book 1 of the Valisar Trilogy.)
