Dark Moon

Dark Moon

David Gemmell


The peaceable Eldarin have been the final of 3 historical races.  The mystical Oltor, healers and poets, had fallen sooner than the dread strength of the harsh and sadistic Daroth.  Yet in a single notable evening the invincible Daroth had vanished from the face of the earth.  Gone have been their towns, their armies, their terror.  The nice Northern desolate tract used to be their basically legacy.  Not a hint remained for one thousand years...

The battle of the Pearl had raged for seven years and the armies of the 4 Duchies have been exhausted and weary of bloodshed.  But the most important of the Dukes, Sirano of Romark, possessed the Eldarin Pearl and was firm to resolve its secrets.

Then, on one unforgetable day, a depressing moon rose above the good Northern wasteland, and a black tidal wave swept around the land.  In moments the barren region had vanished underneath lush fields and forests and a good urban will be visible glittering within the morning sunlight.

From this urban re-emerged the blood-hungry Daroth, robust and immortal, proof against spear and sword.  They had just one desire:  to rid the area of humankind for ever.

Now the destiny of the human race rests at the abilities of 3 heroes:  Karis, warrior-woman and strategist; Tarantio, the deadliest swordsman of the age; and Duvodas the Healer, who will study a poor truth.

A new international of delusion and magic, love and heroism, from the bestselling writer of The Legend of Deathwalker.
