Drachar is an outcast Eldric on the hunt for ultimate power. Along the way he uses Demons and the demon world to assist him, as well as unlikely allies such as the Krell. The rest of the Eldric have to do things they find distasteful to try to track him down and stop him. The Eldric will never be the same again either way!
It is a wonderful prequel to the "Prophecy of the Kings" books!!
"Drachar's Demons" by David and Andrew Burrows is the intriguing prequel to David Burrows' `Prophecy of the Kings trilogy'. The origin of the evil Drachar is detailed in this sometimes chilling fantasy tale that describes the Eldric as they discover the powers and uses of the previously shunned demons. Lothanal, an ambitious sorcerer, discovers that unimaginable power is available through alliance with demons who can be conscripted with the promise of souls. One man's actions may be enough to overthrow the entire Eldric society as he pursues power to the exclusion of any consideration of appropriate morals. His former colleagues will have to learn concepts that have previously been considered anathema to their entire race and unlikely allies will be needed to combat the actions that threaten to destabilize the entire region. Beings and defenses formerly believed to exist only in legends will need to be utilized to combat the threat initiated through the actions of a single sorcerer and the lives of the Eldric and their neighboring kingdoms will be forever changed. The overwhelming odds faced by the brave defenders of the lands may be unsurmountable if they cannot find a successful defense against the demons who want to overrun the world.
