There is much debate on what to do with the lone surviving Outlander, currently under Baden's protection. The majority of people want to kill him and be done with that part of history, but Baden still believes there is much to be learned, and tries as hard as he can to keep the enemy alive.
Meanwhile, in Lon Ser, another, more sophisticated group of Outlanders is preparing to invade Tobyn Ser once again. The leader of this group is the talented Nal-Lord Melyor i Lakin, a young woman out to make a name for herself.
On the outskirts of Lon Ser lives the outcasts, the Gildriites who posses powers not unlike the mages of Tobyn Ser. Gwilym, Bearer of the Stone, recieves a prophetic dream which tells him to journey deep into Lon Ser - to be exact, into Bragor-Nal, the most dangerous part of Lon Ser. In his dream, he finds himself meeting up with not only Melyor, but Orris [remember him?] as well.
With many different plot lines and ever building suspense, "The Outlanders" is the perfect sequel to "Children of Amarid."
