The time for complete control over the land is at hand. Gorgrael and his forces, along with the Dark Man, plan to overtake and build the Kingdom of Tencendor under his rule. At least that's what he thinks.

Evil cannot win.

Evil has been a part of many lives, including those of Faraday, Axis, and Azhure. Each one has dealt with their personal demons, strengthening them for the battles yet to come. As they find the truth hidden amid the shadows, their very lives and the lives of their kinsman depend on their cunning, wit and perseverance to find the path each must follow.

With the Prophecy now ingrained into every mind who hears it, Gorgrael's hold weakens while thriving, for not many know where the StarMan resides even though many believe he now walks. The evil ripening at hos very being is the mystery Axis must conquer. He knows Gorgrael is his half-brother and, thanks to the teachings at the knee of his father, StarDrifter, Axis also knows that he was taught the Icarii songs at a very young age. However, without use, they have lain dormant. With his powers at his side along with the boon of the Ferryman, Axis has mastered the StarDance to perfection. Now, he has an ever greater mission to fulfill - to find the one who mentors Gorgrael. And it's possible this man is very near.

Deep within the Charonite world the secrets remain buried, waiting to tell the one who can unite the races so all can live peacefully in Tencendor. But uniting them may be easier said than done -- and may take longer than anyone ever expected. However, Axis has a problem no one else knows about. He only has a year to fulfill his mission to the GateKeeper.

Sara Douglass seamlessly weaves in the forgotten secrets, the shared glory of victory, and the love between two meant to be together, walking through the stars of eternity. Their path is troubled from the trials focused on in Book One, trials which expand as more is revealed in Enchanter. The downfall of this series (as with most fantasy trilogies or series) is that in order to appreciate the nuances, readers must begin with the first book: The Wayfarer Redemption.
