This sword was forged in the War of Darkness long ago. A mortal wielded it then to battle a terrible, immortal enemy. A mortal wields it again in the next book of The Storm Chronicles as the great adversary gains in strength to trouble the world of men again. I must ask your patience, but it will be worth it! The Gathering Storm introduces this hero who must embrace his destiny as the one called or watch his world fall into darkness with no hope for light.
