The third Dungeons & Dragons novel based on the new edition of the D&D game. Featuring iconic characters that appear throughout the latest edition of the D&D game, this series will attract new players and readers to the various worlds featured in the Wizards of the Coast, Inc. book publishing line. The familiar characters and D&D-related content will also make this series very approachable for current players. The wizard or sorcerer who wins the well-known Duel Arcane will be awarded the Golden Wand, a magical device that holds incredible power. Magic users come from far and wide to compete in the contest. Some are drawn to glory, others to the competition. Still more come for other, darker reasons, driven by an oath to a merciless death god. And some oaths cannot be broken.
