The Grand Council - whose members, many of which are ancient enemies, represent the last of the free nations - convenes in the sacred Mountain King Temple to determine action against a leader with new drive and strength. Some claim this man promises greatness for all, some claim he is the greatest threat their lands have ever seen.

Thorik has caused the death of the legendary Mountain King, releasing a rift forward through time that will change history forever. With the king dead, the war to free the slaves from the Notarian rulers will never take place, preventing the Dovenar Kingdom from ever existing. Without the strength of the Dovenar Kingdom, the Altered Creatures will most likely become masters of the civilized species. Leading them, the demon Ergrauth will finally be able to eliminate all species that do not obey him.
Thorik is hunted for changing the future and the past, causing mass chaos centuries away from him. To stop these ramifications, E'rudites search for him in hopes of using their powers to prevent his birth and therefore prevent his actions in the first place. Unsure how to evade those pursuing him, Thorik retreats into a city whose citizens live in extreme poverty and are controlled by a cruel overlord. In his attempt to help free them from their plight, he finds he exposes himself and those he cares about to the powers of the E'rudites.
War has finally arrived along with the demons who are planning to take the world back from the humans and other species who have ruled for hundreds of years. Rummon, lord of the dragons, must be resurrected to end the war. But doing this will cause a second war, a war pitting dragons against dragons. This war of dragons, giants, demons, and altered creatures must be stopped before all is lost. It will be up to Thorik and his companions to figure out how to restore peace, assuming it's not too late.
Desperate to save the soul of his grandmother, the shaman of his village, young Thorik forges through treacherous and uncharted lands in order to find a spell to release her. Accompanying him on this trek are his uncle, who wishes to end the foolhardy journey; a young girl, whose desire for Thorik distracts him from his quest; an alchemist, who has his own devious plans once the spell is found; and a creature who knows the mysteries and mythology of the land. Using his conviction and perseverance to overcoming temptations and deadly threats, Thorik unites his companions in order to help save his grandmother.
The Eve of Light sets the timetable of the prophecy to come true: Ambrosius' son, Ericc, will be sacrificed at the Temple of Surod. Darkmere and his son, Lord Bredgin, will ensure the prophecy comes true in order to rid the family line of future threats. Bredgin has been training his entire life to prevent the second part of the prophecy from coming true, for if Ericc is not sacrificed, the boy is be the one who will kill him.
