Twice the combined might of Ynis Aielle's greatest heroes and wizards has hurled back the demon armies of Morgan Thalasi. Always the Black Warlock
has rebounded, stronger and more evil. But never has he wielded such

The beautiful Rhiannon, daughter of the Emerald Witch, has been captured by Mitchell and given over to his dark master. Now the last hope of defeating Thalasi – and Rhiannon's last hope as well – lies at the heart of a mountain, guarded by a dragon as old as the world itself...
