The fiery mountain struck Krynn.
The gods shattered the Temple of Istar.
One hundred years later, the continent of Ansalon is a desolate land, its people struggling for survival in a world ravaged by plague, starvation, and war.
Escaping the doomed city of Istar, Raistlin—now a wizard of great power—casts a spell that brings his twin brother, Caramon, and the cleric, Crysania, forward to this point in time. Here, in the Tower of High Sorcery, Raistlin intends to enter the Portal and challenge the Dark Queen.
But, one by one, Raistlin’s plans start to unravel.
Too late he discovers that he is caught in a time loop—one that must lead inexorably to his own destruction!
One from which there seems to be no escape. . . .
Plucked from impending death by Raistlin’s magic, Caramon and Crysania make their way through a landscape blasted by the still-lingering effects of the Cataclysm. While Raistlin seeks to fulfill his destiny in a confrontation with an evil mage from the past, Caramon is drawn into the violent upheaval of the Dwarfgate Wars. Crysania, torn between the two brothers, will find her faith tested in the streets of a plague-ridden village.
And Tasslehoff, curious as ever, will find the limits of that curiosity tested as he wanders cheerfully through the depths of the Abyss.
