After witnessing the murder of a dear friend, River realizes who is at fault. Master Ulda has returned, and he will stop at nothing to take over all of Nōl’Deron. After taking control of an island and forcing those who live there to serve him, Ulda has grown infinitely more powerful.
River concocts a plan to prevent his enemy from wreaking havoc across the land, but he soon finds himself too weak to perform the simplest of spells. Calling for the aid of the other elements, he is determined to stand against the evil that threatens his home, and put an end to Ulda’s scheming once and for all.
'At River's End' takes place 30 years after the events depicted in 'A Story of River'. Though the two books feature many of the same characters, they can easily be read as standalone novels.
