The Alfar wait in a forgotten empire before they can return to their poisoned home city. But a decisive battle is approaching . . .
There are four races: the Elves, the Dwarves and the Humans and the Alfar.
The other three all know the Alfar to be dark, relentless warriors, set on conquest; they have been deadly enemies since time immemorial. But are things about to change?
The young alfar triplets Sisaroth, Tirigon and Firusha have been banished to the deadly underground realm of Phondrason, two of them exiled for a murder they did not commit, the third determined to stay with them, to help them survive this terrifying place full of monsters. Then Sisaroth meets a dwarf, Tungdil, who has been locked up in the Dark Abyss (Tungdil will be well-known to readers of the Dwarves series!) - and their unexpected relationship will change the fate of the alfar and the dwarves - for ever.
