Publisher's Summary

The peaceful Eldarin were the last of three ancient races. The mystical Oltor, healers and poets, had fallen before the dread power of the cruel and sadistic Daroth. Yet in one awesome night, the invincible Daroth had vanished from the face of the earth. Gone were their cities, their armies, their terror. The Great Northern Desert was their only legacy. Not a trace remained for a thousand years....

The War of the Pearl had raged for seven years, and the armies of the four Duchies were exhausted and weary of bloodshed. But the foremost of the Dukes, Sirano of Romark, possessed the Eldarin Pearl and was determined to unravel its secrets.

Then, on one unforgettable day, a dark moon rose above the Great Northern Desert, and a black tidal wave swept across the land. In moments the desert had vanished beneath lush fields and forests, and a great city could be seen glittering in the morning sunlight. From this city reemerged the blood-hungry Daroth, powerful and immortal, immune to spear and sword. They had only one desire: to rid the world of humankind forever. Now the fate of the human race rests on the talents of three heroes: Karis, warrior woman and strategist; Tarantio, the deadliest swordsman of the age; and Duvodas the Healer, who will learn a terrible truth.

Loved it

I loved it and didn't want it to end. I fell in love with the characters every last one of them. I will listen to it again.

The narrator belched

how can someone so obviously talented do such a half arsed job . the narrator burps at one point, and makes so many mistakes during reading the book it makes you wonder if English is his first language.

don't get me wrong quite a good narration in some ways but at times he obviously wasn't reading a story he was just reading a shopping list .

weird

Great Story

This is another great story but spoiled by the delivery and mispronounced words and inconsistent use of the name of one of the lead characters
