This takes place in the Dragonlance realm and is the second book of a trilogy. One must read the first novel to understand the events that take place in this book.

another great read, poor guerrand being blamed for the horrors inflicted on his hometown and family because of his past friend who has a real chip on his shoulder because of his mentor's vile mistreatment of him!! the plague that hit the town was way out evil and pure magic!! but in the end with the help of his nephew rand manages to help some of the people and return just in time to bastion!!
