Returning to one of their best-loved fantasy series, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman bring alive a sweeping tale of intrigue and magic.

It is twenty years since the once-magical land of Thimhallan was shattered by the forging of the Darksword. The survivors of that catastrophe now live on Earth, bereft of magic and hope, forbidden to return home.

Only Joram remains behind on the world ravaged by his Darksword.  Although the magic weapon has been destroyed--and with it, Joram's power--rumors have risen that Joram has forged a second Darksword.

Now, as a merciless alien race threatens Earth with annihilation, Earth's desperate leaders look to Joram as their only hope.  But even as his old friend Saryon begins the perilous journey to seek his aid, the embittered Joram has his own plans for the weapon.

And Joram is not the only one.  Soon a new menace looms, foreshadowing betrayal, enslavement, and death to humans and Thimhallans alike.

From the Publisher:

Twenty years ago, the magical land of Thimhallan was destroyed with the forging of the Darksword, leaving a small group of survivors exiled on Earth. Only Joram, who created the Darksword, remained behind in the shattered land. But another catastrophe beckons, as an alien race plans to annihilate the remaining colonists. But Joram has forged another Darksword, and Earth's leaders see it as their only salvation. And it is up to Saryon, an old friend of Joram's, to put the sword in safe hands and possibly save the planet.Legacy of the Darksword by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hick.Copyright 1997 by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.

Book Description Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. It is twenty years since the once-magical land of Thimhallan was shattered by the forging of the Darksword. The survivors of that catastrophe now live on Earth, many still huddled in bleak relocation camps, bereft of magic, bereft of hope, forbidden by law to return to their ancient home. Only Joram, the willful, ambitious adventurer whose creation of the Darksword devastated Thimhallan, remains behind on that ravaged world. But the Darksword has been destroyed - and with it, Joram's power. But now an even greater catastrophe threatens. A merciless alien race known as the Hch'nyv is systematically annihilating Earth's outposts and colonies, moving relentlessly toward Earth itself. But there are rumors that Joram has forged a second Darksword, and Earth's desperate leaders regard it as their last, best hope. They enlist the elderly Saryon, Joram's friend and confidant of twenty years ago, to return to Thimhallan with his scribe and companion, Reuven, and persuade Joram to surrender the sword. Saryon and Reuven face grave challenges, not least the unpredictable dangers of an enchanted realm in ruins. An embittered Joram has his own plans for the Darksword - as do the Technomancers, a secret alliance of humans and Thimhallans whose soulless magic is based on the power of death. In the shadow of the Hch'nyv menace a closer danger lurks, threatening betrayal, enslavement, and death to humans and Thimhallans alike. Seller Inventory # AAS9780553578126
