< The Spell of the Black Dagger
Ithanalin's Restoration >

The seventh Legend of Ethshar, it was published after The Spell of the Black Dagger and before Ithanalin's Restoration. Set in 5202 YS, it comes chronologically after The Misenchanted Sword but before the other novels and most if not all of the short stories. It reveals very little about warlockry aside from the generally known information. In fact, the book shows that the events of the Night of Madness and warlockry itself was more poorly understood at that time than any point after. The main character of the novel is Hanner, a minor lord in Ethshar of the Spices and nephew to the much more important Lord Faran.
