The Timekeeper Demons burst through the Star Gate to invade Tencendor, destroying the Gate and the magic of the StarDance in the process. Terrifying and cruel, they have come with only one purpose - to see Qeteb destroy the StarSon and Tencendor forever. Enchanters and gods alike are helpless as the Demons lay waste to the land. Zared and Askam must put aside their differences and unite to save their people, as the need to find a Sanctuary for them all becomes ever more urgent. The StarSon must eventually become the hunted in the maze - only he who has the courage to endure death can learn the secrets of the ancient Enemy - but who will it be?
