The Lady has spoken to me. It has already begun. Shadows move out of the shrinking desert, south to the rich and arrogant cities of Sembia. ';Be brave, little man,' says the shadowman, and the boy thinks his voice is surprisingly soft. ';Stay with your mother. This will be over soon.' The shadows swallow him and he is gone. On the edge of a war that will change the face of Faern, the world will find that not all shadows serve Shade.From the Paperback edition.
