The Shadow Realm: Whispered to be found on the edge of the Void itself. A desolate wasteland of walking monstrosities and savage tribesmen - where every moment is a continual struggle for survival. It's here, that Khellaran awakens to find himself a prisoner in Valen Dreckmoore's palace. With hope of escape, the First Blade Master of Phondari is forced to make a terrible choice - join Valen and betray the Resistance, or face torture and ultimately, execution. After Artis' desperate duel with Valen, The Prince of Dragons' fate is unkwn. Trydus continues their mission to free the Blade Masters. But then, tragedy befalls Kohr, as the first of the seven Undying Dragons ascends to usurp the thrones of the Northern Kingdoms. With the Resistance in peril and Khellaran held captive, their faith lies with a newly-recruited vice Blade Master, Tarra Gwineren - a scrawny young woman whom Artis found begging at the gates of Phondari. He believed her to somehow be crucial in uniting the Resistance, and bringing about the downfall of Valen Dreckmoore.
