(PAPERBACK EDITION) Ekleipsis (Greek, eclipse): Judarius claimed that darkness would one day overcome and destroy all light. The name of that day, he called thus. The book opens with the birth of one named Vandor, of whom the story mainly centers around. We meet his friends as he matures, as things once again begin to turn toward the Darkness. As the land of Erde starts to spiral toward the foretold Ekleipsis, the dragon appears, the heir of Judarius comes forth, and the Darkness once again presses against all that is good. Fighting the supposed loss of loved ones, his friends use of dark magic, the meeting of dwarfs, and beholding things which he has never seen, Vandor carries us from his birth until the beginning of the Ekleipsis- whereby, all that oppose the Darkness must flee for their lives.
