War rages and rebellion brews in this second installment of a thrilling trilogy set in Krynn's minotaur empire
As the War of Souls engulfs Ansalon, the minotaur empire makes an alliance with the ogre realm. Side by side, they invade the stricken elven kingdom of Silvanesti, leaving blood and devastation in their wake. Caught up in a violent rush of rampaging, conquering, and enslaving, the minotaur Emperor Hotak ignores ominous signs of trouble within his realm. The rebel faction has grown formidable.
From the savage mining camps of the ogres rises an escaped minotaur slave with no ambitions of his own, save survival. He is a scion of the imperial bloodline, and his course of action will push the empire to the brink of anarchy . . . and with it, the rest of Krynn.
