From back of book: Ten years have passed since the Darkwar raged upon Midkemia and Kelewan. But peace is fleeting...Laromendis is a conjurer from another world--a world inhabited by a race of high elves whose home is being ravaged by the Dread Legion of the Demon King. The elves' only hope lies in finding the lost homworld of their ancient legends. Medkemia is that lost world, Laromendis tells his people--and now they must reclaim it, at any cost.
In Midkemia, the magician Pug and the Conclave of Shadows believe the elves to be refugees and potential allies, for they know the true thereat is the demons who invaded the elves' world. To battle this fearsome enemy, Pug summons the help of a demon master, the warlock Amirantha, and a holy demon-taming cleric, Sandreena of the Order of Dala.
Unwittingly, Pug has reunited two former lovers whose parting was bitter. Sandreena has a shadowy past and is a fierce soldier as any man in her order. Amirantha is brother to Pug's sworn enemy...who may be in service to the Demon Kind Maag. Above all, can the beleaguered elves be trusted, or are they as dire a threat as the domons who pursue them?
