From Publishers Weekly:

Popular fantasy writer McKeirnan brings his Mithgar series to a triumphant conclusion with this sprawling story. Right after noting that the great story arc of the series is "the struggle of those who believe in liberty and freedom... against those who would take those things away," McKeirnan introduces two babies, both born under miraculous circumstances and expected to bring about great changes in Mithgar, as predicted by Oracles and ancient prophecy. First is Kutsen Yong, born of a dead woman. Marked with the Yong, the sign of the Dragon, he grows into an arrogant and pitiless lord, the prophesied Mage Warrior King who will command Dragons and rule the world. Meanwhile, good-hearted Bair, the first child born to an Elven mother in Mithgar in millennia, is the long-awaited Impossible Child, "the Rider of the Planes who will bear the Silver Sword to Mithgar when evil comes to the world." At 16, Bair joins the Elf Aravan in his search for the evil Necromancer YdralAHigh Priest of a cult determined to free the god Gyphon from his prison deep in the earth and help him defeat Adon, Mithgar's defender of free will. The novel moves slowly toward the final confrontation, building tension with bloody combat and magical battles as Aravan and Bair search for the knowledge and weapons needed to stand against Kutsen Yong and Ydral. McKeirnan's fansAas well as those of Terry Brooks and Terry GoodkindAwill enjoy his usual array of thin-skinned power-mad evil-doers, hearty, honorable good guys and grand magical fireworks. (June)

From Library Journal:

Born to an elven woman, the child known as Bair contains the blood of four races in his veins and bears a destiny that marks him as the Impossible Child fated to travel between the worlds and wield the Silver Sword. McKiernan's eighth, and possibly last, novel of Mithgar weaves together the past and present of a world where elves, humans, shapeshifters, and other creatures struggle to prevent the forces of darkness from overwhelming the land. In the tradition of Tolkien, the author blends lore and prophecy with vivid battle scenes and emotional drama to create a tale of high fantasy that should appeal to most fans of epic fiction. Recommended for fantasy collections.
