They say "you can't go home again" but I didn't mind returning to the world of Darksword twenty years later! Weis & Hickman stir things up again but the setting is on Earth, where the survivors from the Darksword trilogy ended up. Only Joram remains behind. Earth needs help and Joram must help them. I enjoyed this revisit!
