Publisher's Summary

Before the War of the Lance...

The Companions have gone their separate ways, each vowing to return with news of the growing darkness in Ansalon. Sturm Brightblade, a warrior whose honor is his life, and Kitiara, a passionate woman of uncertain loyalties, travel north in search of Sturm's long-lost father.

Before they reach their destination, a band of gnomes begs for their help. But nothing with gnomes ever goes as planned. The two adventurers are soon thrown into a perilous adventure that will take them beyond the realms of Ansalon, through love and hate, to darkness and light.

A fun “kender tale”

I imagine Kit telling this story to Tanis (in between Winter Night and Summer Dawning)cover up the truth of what actually happened. It’s a lot of fun. Don’t pass this one up.

horrible narrator, shallow dull story

narrator was hard to listen to, very jerky with wiere tempo, like they edited it and spaced words too much. the story was boring and unexciting, mad worse by the narrator.

I love gnomes with super powers

If you don't like this book then you are like Sturm and you have issues with magic. It is a fun adventure and it always leaves me curious about my little gnome friends. Do they ever make it back to the moon?

Barely okay...

Disjointed story that felt like two or three cobbled together. I can't really recommend this one.

It’s ok.

It wasn’t what I was expecting or hoping for. Certainly didn’t care for a lot of the early to middle parts of the books. But did like the last 4 chapters of the books at least that saved the book in my eyes a bit.
