Fear and dread have fallen on the land of Ansalon as life-long friends reunite at the Inn of the Last Home. They are as different as friends can be - an outcast in love with a princess, a would-be warrior, his brother a wizard-in-training, a stern knight, a grizzled old dwarf, and a childlike kender - but they have come together again in hopes of saving all they hold precious.
But thier beloved homeland has fallen farther into darkness than they can imagine. What began as a gathering of friends soon turns into a struggle for survival and a quest to stop the dreaded Dark Queen from enslaving the world. Enemies lurk in every shadow, and on the winds of autumn comes the whisper of creatures thought long gone - a rumor of dragons.
