The Elven armed forces are on the move - now known throughout the world as the Resistance - for the purpose of defying the evil Possessors of the North. They have liberated the Valleys of Corhelth, thwarting the enemy's efforts there, and are now on their way westward to ask of the remaining races of the world to aid in retaking the human country of Gemdals. But not all races are willing to join their forces, and the Possessors who reside in Gemdals are numerous and strong. The enemy's resolve may not be so easily defeated. In this second chapter of the tale of the Dark World, Delenas, Lasgaleth, Clese, Dwolic, Nela, and the rest experience adventure, peril, doubt, love, betrayal, discovery and the struggle and danger of resisting the darkness that is both strong and active.
