Now the Leishoranya prepare a final blow under the leadership of the dread warlord Ssenkahdavic, most skilled of all in the powers of Dar. Against him stand the brothers Kahsir, Alàric and Haskon, and their father and grandfather, last living leaders of the Krotànya.

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For a thousand years two nearly immortal races, the Krotanya, followers of Light, and the Leishoranya, followers of Darkness, have been at war. The only difference between the two peoples: the Krotanya have strict rules about using the power of their minds to affect the world around them, and the prime rule is that they must use their powers only in defense. But this punctilio is spelling doom for their cause. The Leishoranya are winning; they have force of numbers on their side, and no scruples constrain their magic. Only one leader of the Krotanya is having any success on the battlefield: the Mind-Born prince Kahsir uses his wit to win military battles, rather than relying on mere might. But after a calamitous battle, Kahsir finds his power is much stronger than any known in the history of his people. If he uses this power aggressively, against all he has been taught is right and good, he can change the tide of war. Kahsir faces the ultimate dilemma: use his abilities and betray his people, or don't use them and destroy his people..."--Back cover
