Synopsis: The final volume in the Dwarven Nations trilogy reveals the origin story of Derkin, King of Living Stone—the legendary dwarven leader
Despite the stubborn courage of dwarven warriors, the protracted Wilderness War ends as a no-win. The Swordsheath Scroll is signed, and Thorbardin shows its support of the open-minded Qualinesti elves by joining in the construction of Pax Tharkas, a magnificent fortress and a symbol of peace.
Meanwhile, the Mountain Dwarves await the coming of a king who will restore them to their former glory. When a new leader emerges from their midst, it seems the prophecy has been fulfilled and a victory over the Ergothians is no longer a futile hope. He is Derkin, the King of Living Stone—a hero whose bravery and wisdom will be written in the dwarven annals and whose name will become the “throne name” of all future dwarven kings.
