The realm is tormented by catastrophe. Lord Safar Timura, the great wizard, is trapped in the doomed world of Hadin, condemned to suffer and die, over and over again. It is up to his wizard son, Prince Palimak, to stop the disaster slowly poisoning land and sea. Though he is half human and half demon, even Palimak may not possess the awesome powers needed to free Safar and discover the great lost tomb, guarded by a fierce she-beast who holds secrets to halt the terror. There are many enemies, barbarian kings, monsters of the underworld--and, lording over all, the Demon Moon, looming in silent, bloody challenge. With the help of Leiria, warrior goddess, Palimak must destroy the doomspell and confront the sinister Demon Moon. Only then will the gods be awakened and the world be saved.

I actually started out with book 3 and will be working my way back through this trilogy. John Hough's Narration is outstanding. The story takes so many wonderful twists and turns it's wonderful. Not predictable as many fantasy adventures can be. You'll find yourself cheering the characters along and going along on an emotional roller coaster with them a great way to spend 17 hours of your life!
Story was good with elements of the Dark Tower abounding
The narration and / or editing was awful. Mispronunciations of common words and an uneven pace made paying attention difficult. And the hambone laughter! ugh!
