Draw near and listen, or else time is at an end.
The watering holes of the Plain are drying up, the fearsome fanghorn grow more numerous, and bad omens abound. Wulfgar, a leader of the Altaii people, must contend with twin queens, warlords, prophets and magic in hopes of protecting his people and securing their future. Elspeth, a visitor from another world, holds the answers, but first Wulfgar must learn to ask the right questions.
But what if the knowledge that saves the Altaii will also destroy them?

I loved this book! It's not the Wheel of Time, but as Jordan's wife pointed out in the intro, you can see echoes of the terminology he'll use in the series. It's similar to his Conan work. The story was engaging and the characters were relatable.
