After generations of friction, the leaders of two lands meet in the holy city of Ishalem to bring an end to the bloodshed and to divide the world between them.
Sadly, this new spirit of fellowship is shortlived. A single tragic accident destroys, in minutes, the peace that took years to build. The world is once more cast into the fires of war - and this time the flames may burn until nothing remains. From the highest lord to the lowest servant, no man or woman will be unchanged by the conflict.
But while war rages across both continents, a great quest will defy storms and sea serpents to venture beyond the horizon, where no maps exist - to search for a land out of legend. It is a perilous undertaking, but there will always be the impetuous, the brave and the mad who are willing to leave their homes to explore the unknown.
Even unto the edge of the world . . .

Like my title says, just keep reading. It takes a bit to get into it, but it is well worth the time.
This narrator is boring and makes the book sound sad. I forced myself to listen to part one hoping he would improve. He didn't. It was too difficult to get a feel for the story so i will not comment on it.Listen to the sample carefully before you buy this audio book.
Only the best Sci-fi / Fantasy Have read over 1000 books!!
Scott bricks voice is very, very, "special" it is always the same. The voice works for some books very well, others not so much. At the end of the day this is a great book and I look to more in the series. IF... you have listened to brick before and gotten used to his voice... THEN you will like this book, if your not used to it and are not willing to spend 3 hours getting used to it... you will not like this book. It "is" a great book! If you don't listen to it "read it"
I'm a big fan Anderson and Brick, but deleted the book after a few hours. Way to many strange names and history to keep it straight.
