In a spectacular feat of daring and magic, Elena and her army of outlaws and rebels have defeated evil's minions and released the mystic secrets of the Blood Diary. But the malevolent Dark Lord has unleashed the Weirgates-black wells of ferocious energy that are his greatest source of power. Now Elena's bravest allies are sent to find and destroy the Gates, as windships carry the fight north to the frigid woodlands, south to the burning desert sands, and east to the blasted regions of dread Gul'gotha.

Along the way, they will face their own personal demons as well. The twin brothers Mogweed and Fardale race against time to break the curse that has stolen their shapechanging birthright, and Elena's brother Joach must evade the desert sandsharks if he is to master his own elemental power. The trail will lead them even to the fabulous el'vin homeland of Stormhaven. None of the rebels will come back unscathed, some never returning at all . . .

And Elena herself must journey to Gulgotha. Daring the enemy's own lair, she must emerge victorious if she is to reveal the secret of the Dark Lord's frightening identity-and the shocking nature of his vast powers.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for JAMES CLEMENS and the Wit'ch War novels of The Banned and the Banished

"Grabs at your heart and tears a little hole, then tears another, and another—a brutal and beautiful ride." — R. A. Salvatore

"Clemens has constructed a world of magic that's never been seen before, with a cast of beings who are so engaging and entrancing that you never want the story to end...His imagery is so brilliant that every scene comes instantly to life, and while everything seems immediately familiar, the reader soon learns to expect a new surprise with every page. And just when you think he can't possibly come up with anything else, a new character bursts upon the tale, bringing along a whole new level of sorcery!" — John Saul

"Classic fantasy told in a classic manner. Solid entertainment—action and adventure wrapped in riddles and mystery." — Don McQuinn

"There are some distinguishing touches in this very Jordanian fantasy [series]...Clemens appears to be following a cherished formula, but he does an unusually good job of dressing the routine elements with distinctive details and creating interesting characters." — Locus
