(from the back of the book)
Finally, the middle epire is taking the field against the great enemy, Prince Helme Haffax, representing the festering thorn in the side of Raul's Empire.
Almost 20 years have passed since the betrayal of the former archmarshall. Now finally the Empress wants to punish the Heptarch and hold him accountable. The goal is to liberate the oppressed Duchy Tobrien and drive the last heir of the Demon Master back into the sea, from which he landed in 1019 BF and the invasion of Tobrien began.
The Middle Empire has long been waiting for this opportunity, and in recent years, all provinces have done their best to prepare for this final campaign against the Shadowlands. Die verlorenen Lande (the lost lands) describes this imperial campaign toward Mendena and ends with a surprise when the army finally charges this old city.
The lost land is the first volume of the two-part campaign to the former archmarshal, Prince Helme Haffax. Many seeds for the future of the Middle Empire are laid, and the heroes can offer all support to wrest Tobrien off the clutches of the black thugs once and for all. The events of this book will find their completion in the sequel The Shadow Marshal.
