About the Book

Silvanos, the august founder of the united elven nation known as Silvanesti, is dead and buried in a crystal tomb. The leadership of the clans and households has fallen to his son, Sithel, who is himself father of twin sons. The princes Sithas and Kith-Kanan represent emerging factions among these elves: Kith-Kanan is the leader of the Wildrunners, a group of elves that stirs tention by forging contacts and trade with the humans of Ergoth; Sithas closely allies himself with the court in the elven capital. The rivalry between kin climaxes with their father’s mysterious death.

When Kith-Kanan is vaguely implicated, Sithas, the firstborn twin, is enthroned.

About the Author
Paul B. Thompson

Paul B. Thompson is the author of eleven books, including many Dragonlance novels co-written with Tonya C. Cook. Their Barbarians trilogy includes Children of the Plains, Brother of the Dragon, and Sister of the Sword. When asked to name his favorite among his own novels, he always says "the newest one." He believes fiction writing is a progressive craft, and tries to improve his technique with each new work. His early ambition was to write historical novels, but finding no market for them in the late '80s, he turned his hand to fantasy and science fiction. His favorite writers in the genre include Alfred Bester, Cordwainer Smith, and L. Sprague de Camp. Paul lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife Elizabeth and a ponderous collection of books, video tapes, and an aging PC.
