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.

Markus Heitz trained to be a teacher after studying history and German literature, then going on to an MA in History. He spent several years as a journalist, writing in his free time, before the runaway success of The Dwarves allowed him to give up the day job. His debut epic fantasy novel, Schatten uber Ulldart (Shadows over Ulldart) was the first of many of his books to win the Deutscher Phantastik Preis (Germany's premier literary award for fantasy) in 2003. Since then he has frequently topped the bestseller charts, and his Number One bestselling Dwarves and Aelfar series have earned him a place among Germany's most successful fantasy authors. The DOORS series, where each book follows the adventurers as they choose a different door, have earned him a whole new audience as he plays with fantasy, thriller and mystery tropes to keep the reader always interested. He currently lives in Saarland, in Germany.
