In this second book in the Sovereign Stone Trilogy, the four pieces of the Sovereign Stone are being sought by the Void Lord Dagnarus. When the human portion is discovered by a Dominion Lord, the battle for the future of Loerem begins. It will be up to an unlikely group of companions to keep the stones from the hands of Dagnarus, or their world will be lost.
I loved this book. So far as I'm concerned, if you want a classic fantasy/adventure with elves and dragons and magic and quests, there are no better writers to turn to than Weis and Hickman. This is an epic story of the struggle between good and evil as two opposing groups vie for the ultimate power the combined Sovereign Stones can give. There is a large cast of characters, but they're all well fleshed out, real people. The balance between world building and character building is perfect and seamless.
I highly recommend this book if you're a fan of the genre.
