|Plot Summary of Journey Into the Void - Sovereign Stone Trilogy 3|
Eos, August 2003, 25.95, 496 pp.
Two hundred years ago King Tamoras of Vinnengael received the Sovereign Stone from the gods and was told to keep it in one piece. In his desire to see the races of humans, orks, elfs and dwarves live in peace with one another he split the stone in quarters, each species receiving one. The center of the stone was part of the Void and the King's youngest son Dagnarus took it into his heart and became Lord of the Void. Corrupted by his newfound powers, Dagnarus sought to overthrow his father but instead destroyed the kingdom.
Now Dagnarus returns from another world, bringing with him the taan, fierce warriors and workers of magic. Using them as an army, he became the new ruler of New Vinnengael. Dagnarus wants the four pieces of the sovereign stone so he can turn them into one jewel, but the four Dominion Lords who carry them have other plans. They must battle the Lord of the Void and win if they want to beat back the darkness that overwhelms the world.
Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman bring to a glorious conclusion The Sovereign Stone Trilogy. Readers do not have to read the first two books in the series to thoroughly enjoy and understand JOURNEY INTO THE VOID though doing so will add to the pleasure. Readers will surprise themselves by feeling pity for the antagonist who at unexpected moments shows himself to be vulnerable to his own emotions. The heroes of this fantastic epic drama, and there are many, capture the hearts of the reader with their intensity and determination to triumph over the forces of evil.
