Long ago, the One True God abandoned the world. Now, in His absence, His ancient nemesis has begun a final campaign to plunge the world into eternal darkness. The only hope of salvation lies with two unlikely heroes.
Beamer the falliwagn is perfectly content living his tranquil life tucked away in his underground burrow in the banks of the Rapid River. But when the River floods and destroys his home, he is forced into the wide world with only his precious Enchanted Sword and his faithful companion, Sniff.
Fleeing to his cousin's home in the nearby mountains, they meet a lost young woman with amnesia and a wizard who tells them that the River's flooding was only a portent of more terrible things to come. For the Shadow, the ancient enemy of the Creator, has returned to the world with the intention of destroying it and recreating all of reality.
The Shadow's main target - the Queen Beyond Time, second only to the Creator and guardian of the Knot that holds reality together. She alone has any chance of resisting the Shadow and defending the Knot. Unfortunately, the Queen is the amnesiac young woman found by Beamer, with no knowledge of who she is or of the power she possesses.
Can a small group of peace-loving falliwagns defend her against an all-powerful god - or will the Knot be unraveled, and the world remade into a hell of eternal pain and damnation?
The Last Legend is an enchanting epic fantasy in the grand tradition of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
