The Grand Council - whose members, many of which are ancient enemies, represent the last of the free nations - convenes in the sacred Mountain King Temple to determine action against a leader with new drive and strength. Some claim this man promises greatness for all, some claim he is the greatest threat their lands have ever seen. But before any consensus can be made, an immense power is unleashed, annihilating the temple and killing the council members inside. Young Thorik Dain’s journey to discover who or what destroyed his people's most sacred center, leads him on an unexpected quest to prevent the fall of the great Dovenar Kingdom, and the elimination of all mankind.
