Elven Star Author:Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman Long Ago, mighty magic-users divided their world into four realms, separating the poeples, obliterating history, planting the seeds of chaos and warfare. Phe Patryn, Haplo's people, were imprisoned for eons in the deadly maze of the Labyrinth - until a mysterious lord began to help them to escape. Erecting a foothold in the Nexus the lord has ... more »found a way to bring Haplo through the Death Gate into the four realms. His mission: to explore, to uncover lost history, to find his ancient oppressors - and to help his master establish dominion over the sundered world.
In Elven Star Haplo journeys to steamy Pryan, a world where never-ending sunlight and plentiful rain gave birth to a vigorous jungle so vast that humans and elves live in the trees and only dwarves live anywhere near the ground. From the treetops the aristocratic elves serve as weapon merchants to the other races, whose incessant warfare sends a stead stream of profits and essential sources skyward.
Haplo's mandate was to sow chaos among Pryan's inhabitants to prime them for eventual Patryn rule. But the constant wars have already achieved this. The generations of dissent and race hatred will not heal even under the threat of annihilation at the hands of the legendary tytans. Crying doom and armed with a magic powerful enough to rival Haplo's own, a human priest and his dragon ride in the vanguard of destruction. Now, Haplo's salvation depends on his ability to overcome the tytans - but not even he knows the way to conquer these renegade giants.
