Synopsis: Five years before the War of the Lance engulfs Krynn, Sturm and Kitiara embark on a wild adventure of magic, power, and love
 
The Companions have gone their separate ways, each vowing to return with news of the growing darkness in Ansalon. Sturm Brightblade, a warrior whose honor is his life, and Kitiara, a passionate woman of uncertain loyalties, travel north in search of Sturm's long-lost father.

Before they reach their destination, a band of gnomes begs for their help. But nothing with gnomes ever goes as planned, and the two adventurers find themselves crash-landed on, of all places, Lunitari.
 
The red moon of neutrality is a desolate place of wonder and dangers—of tree-people ruled by a mad monarch; giant ants formed of living crystals; and a mysterious brass dragon dwelling in an obelisk. Together, the honor-bound Solamnic Knight and the remarkable warrior-woman must embark on a perilous adventure that will take them beyond the realms of Ansalon, through love and hate, to darkness and light.
