Colbey’s duties in the world of mortals were seemingly done—the Renshai were safely established in a community of their own, and Sterrane was ruling peacefully in the kingdom of Bearn. Now Colbey must face the Seven Tasks of Wizardry and learn whether he is truly the new Western Wizard, keeper of neutrality.
But Colbey is about to discover that there is an Eighth Task far more dangerous not only to himself, but to the worlds of humans and gods alike. And even if he survives to take on that eighth challenge, there are those among the gods, Wizards, and mortalkind ready to make loyal allies into weapons to use against Colbey.
For with Ragnarok looming over all the worlds, both those sworn to law and those promised to chaos will unite to stop the Wizard-warrior by any means—though their very actions against Colbey may become the catalyst for mutual destruction.

But now the days decreed in ancient prophecy have come upon the mortal realms. The Great War has been fought and a Renshai has proven its Champion.
Yet even as the war’s heroes struggle to place the rightful king of Bearn upon his throne, and the also true Renshai seeks to train a new generation of his warrior race, the word is carried forth on falcon’s wings that the Western Wizard is no more.
And unless Shadimar, the Wizard of the East, can find the one mortal with any hope of surviving the challenge of the Seven Tasks of Wizardry, the worlds of gods and mortals alike will fall….

But now the mortal world teeters on the brink of the long-foretold Great War, and not even the eternally conflicting sorceries of the Wizards may be enough to stave off the start of a battle which could—so legends say—herald the beginning of the dreaded final age for mortals, Wizards, and even the gods themselves.

He is a master of destruction who—if he can survive in a world where the very name Renshai is guaranteed sentence of death—may be doomed to become the Champion of the Great War.
