About the Book

The world of Donothor was a child feeling the pangs of growth. A just man and his family labor to unite the peoples of Donothor against beasts and lawlessness. Dark Magick of utmost power carries ancient evil to Donothor. Childhood is spoiled. Alliances of dwarves, men, gray elves, prismatic dragons and Light Sorcerers oppose the alliances of goblins, hobgoblins, ogres, giants, black dragons, dark elves, and Dark Sorcerers. An aberration of Magick creates a breach between two very different worlds. These worlds become entangled. Peoples of both worlds struggle against the forces of Dark Magick. They must face a myriad of fantastic beasts. What courses should they take? How will events in one world affect the other? Can ancient powers overcome the evil? What are the keys to victory?
