From a tiny snowbound village, five men and women are about to embark on a journey that will change their lives -and the destiny of their world.

For two thousand years, since he was cast out from Dona Mihst, the fabled Undying Man has been plotting his revenge on the Most High. The Destroyer's plans of vengeance are nearing fruition-and he will allow nothing to stand in his way.

But one man has escaped from the Destroyer's prison, and even though the Lords of Fear ride in pursuit, he will bring word to his people. It will be up to his sons, Hal and<_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Leith, together with a small group of villagers, to warn their world of the coming war.
Russell Kirkpatrick's love of literature and a chance encounter with fantasy novels as a teenager opened up a vast number of possibilities to him. The idea that he could marry storytelling and mapmaking (his other passion) into one project grabbed him and wouldn't let go. He lives in New Zealand with his wife and two children. Find out...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't bother... waste of time. I love fantasy. This is one of the worst series I've ever read. and I did read the entire first trilogy. I hated the main character. There was not character growth, if there was I missed it since the main character was really only good at complaining. Don't bother reading this, if you really want to i'll goive you my copy for free! I've already tried to give it aways only to have it returned and he only made it half way through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh... People who like Robert Jordan will probably like this book. I myself was not a fan of Mr. Jordan, i prefer my days taking place over one chapter instead of ten. Russell Kirkpatrick is a lot like that. Not nearly as in depth as the Wheel of Time series, but I found myself skipping more pages than i was reading to find the parts where things like dialogue and action were happening. Russell Kirkpatrick is a good author. I can see that in his writing. He has good ideas, an eye for detail, and the characters are pretty well thought out and from what I have read I can see them growing. But his writing style does not mesh with my reading style, and as a result I have to unfortunately put him permanently aside for ones that would suite me better.
