Product Overview

Thousands of years ago, the mad emperor Lokan controlled the Nightsword--and imposed his twisted desires on all that lived. Then Lokan mysteriously vanished behind the Maelstrom Wall, into the quantum chaos of the galactic core. But legend says that somewhere behind the Wall, the Nightsword is hidden, its awesome energies waiting to be used again . . . for good or evil.
When Earther astronaut Jeremy Griffiths donned the Mantle of Kendis-Dai and became blessed--and perhaps cursed--with infinite knowledge, he learned the exact direction of Lokan's ill-fated route. And now the secrets stored in his head have made him the target of everyone who has ever coveted the Nightsword for their own ends. Griffiths wants only to get his crew safely home to Earth--and to impress the bewitching, bewildering Merinda Neskat. Yet he is caught firmly in the middle of galactic agendas beyond his control, and this new quest will prove to be the challenge of a lifetime . . .

Author Info
Tracy Hickman
Born in Salt Lake City, the son of a professor, Tracy Hickman attended Brigham Young University. After a missionary stint in Indonesia, Hickman had a few career flirtations, eventually working for several years in theatres (both "legitimate" and cinemas) until the early 1980s when he began to work as a game designer TSR, Inc., the home of the role-playing game DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. The success of that game inspired TSR to develop news games, one of which was DRAGONLANCE, on which Hickman was one of the early designers. In the mid-1980s, with the new game ready to hit the market, Hickman and Margaret Weis wrote the first of a number of related novels--the pair wrote the first six books in the series, which eventually stretched to well over 100 novels, inspiring other, spin-off series as well as other games. Hickman subsequently wrote additional entries in the Dragonlance series as well as several unrelated novels. He also continued to develop new games.
