The Widow's Tale
When the Lunar army advanced into the Storm Mountains, bringing their Chaos-friends with them, the Orlanthi attacked because Orlanth hates Chaos. But the Lunars won. They killed the King and subjugated all Sartar. All except one high, lonely vale that guards the last pass to besieged Whitewall.
Darlath-Lar, father of Wyvern-Child, Rune Lord of Yanafal Tarnils, is just a soldier who cares for his troops and loves the Empire.
Talloran Snake-Eyes, Orlanthi Wind Lord, has fought in more losing battles than any man has a right to, and must not lose this one.
The two men will meet in the mountains.
Only one will survive.
Life is hard. Death is certain.
