No man can defeat him!
The prophecy states that "no man can defeat the warlock". How can the brave and strong swordsman Nico possibly help the novice sorceress Creda and her instructor Veras to overcome this tyrant, whose powerful magic exceeds their own?
Destruction has been found close--too close--to the city. The little band of warriors--Joul and Ferren of the king's army, Creda, Veras and two youths--must find a way to stop the warlock's exploitation and destruction.
Their only hope is to find the three segments of the warlock's shattered talisman to somehow use these against him. But finding each of these poses three unique and puzzling challenges, in places they've never been before . . . On the Trail of the Ruthless Warlock.
