A hugely entertaining epic adventure from the coauthors of Storm Riders
Margaret Weis, the bestselling author of many epic adventure fantasies, is at her best in The Seventh Sigil. Five hundred years ago, a clan of rebels was banished to the bottom of the world; ever since, these Bottom Dwellers have sought revenge, and now they are waging all-out war on the rest of humanity, those who live Above. Their deadly “contramagic” beams destroy buildings and attack naval airships, and their magical drumming brings terrible storms and disrupts the magic of the people and dragons Above. The attack of their full contramagic power will create a magical armageddon.
In an effort to prevent further death, the reunited Dragon Brigade will take the fight to the Bottom. But strength of arms alone will not be enough to conquer their foe.
As the Bottom Dwellers’ blood magic eats away at the world, those Above realize their only possible defense lies in the heretical secrets of contramagic. Loyal priests must decide whether to protect the Church, or risk its destruction in pursuit of the truth.
Margaret Weis (born 1948 in Independence, Missouri) is an American fantasy novelist who, along with Tracy Hickman, is one of the original creators of the Dragonlance game world and has written numerous novels and short stories set in fantastic worlds.
